Amazing Lace-along: The Intro June 3, 2006Posted by merp in Knitting.
[This is a post for Challenge #1 of the Amazing Lace blog-based knitalong thingy]
Meet the PipeDreamTeam!
Our team is a haphazard collection of idle daydreams for fidgety fingers, each project an exciting distraction from the previous one.
Here’s what I’ve started, actually, with yarn and needles:
+Boobholder cardigan (see below), with some quasi-lacy elements.
+Mystery project, small, to be a gift for someone reading this blog. Classic lace.
Here’s what I have yarn for and may eventually start:
+Narrow neck scarf in the lace pattern from Cozy (I made a full-sized Cozy wrap last fall):
…in handpaintedyarn.com’s marron oscuro laceweight (it’s a little redder than this):
Here’s what I dream of starting:
Icarus shawl, because I really want something elegant to wear over that little black dress I’m supposed to have but don’t, or that long dress I wore to Anne’s wedding when I go out to a concert or wedding or whatever. And because, well, look at it.
Prairie Tunic, yarn totally undecided, not even color.
Also want to make, at some point:
+Dayflower scarf, possibly in handpaintedyarn laceweight, olive:
Needless to say, victory is uncertain and the summer is short. A new full-time job and an ongoing dissertation will seriously jeopardize our chances of success.
