Lace Love

February 1, 2010

Knitscene and I have a love/eh relationship — it seems like the issues are either a bit cringeworthy or superb.  The latest issue was a must-buy, and I’ve spent more time flipping through it than any magazine in the last year.  I’m seriously in love with several of the sweaters, and I quickly cast on for one of the shawls.

It’s a fun construction, a bit off center, no bothering with edging or borders.  I’m not sure how they got the dimensions shown if the called for yarn really is laceweight–I already added several repeats of the second chart, and will probably add a few of the third as well, and it still seems small.  Nevermind, it’ll probably get more use as a neck-scarf than as a shoulder shawl.  And although the first few stitches of each row require some counting, the rest repeats along happily–a good combination of interest & ease.
