sesquipedaliatic: Grouchy Daniel finds sand in his toothbrush (Sand and toothbrushes do not mix)
[personal profile] sesquipedaliatic
After much hemming and hawing, I've decided to do something about my irrational fear of lace. Time for a new project! I'm headed to the store to get yarn tomorrow (was going to have Mum mail me some of my stash, but the yarn I had in mind is either cobweb or single ply and [personal profile] charloween helpfully saved me from myself and suggested something with more weight) but all the patterns I'm considering require roughly the same yardage or are flexible. Top three contenders:

Clapo-Ktus- Not the most challenging lace pattern (though lacier than anything I've ever managed), but a lovely drape. Would be fun in a steely grey.

Upstairs- A lacier look, which should hold up just as well with slightly weightier yarn and possibly larger needles.

Sunshine- I love the shape, but calling this lace is stretching it.

I'm also hopelessly in love with this Shipwreck shawl from Knitty. (Don't worry, Girasole, I still drool over you on a regular basis.) It's WHOA CRAZY outside of my skill and price range, and requires way more hours than I can give right now. But so pretty! The second shot, of the shawl unfurled over the water, makes me oh so happy.

Hey pattern makers: take beautiful pictures of your pieces and I will LOVE YOU AND YOUR WORK FOREVER.
