Lace!

KnittingPosted by Ann Helen Fri, May 01, 2009 14:22:00

My first go at lace knitting and english pattern. It is fun and with lovely colorful yarn, one can play around with simple patterns to make stunning creations!

I started the easy way by using a rather simple pattern called Rose Heart Shawl. Thought it a bit tricky at first as I am not used to following charts, instructions and even a row counter! After finishing 28 rows:Please note the homemade stitch marker! Camilla helped me make some smiley

Thanks to KnitPicks knitting community and their helpful tutorials and explaination, I managed to get the stitches and principles right.
