Greek, Sir, . . . is like lace; every man gets as much of it as he can.

Proofknitting \

I’ve been focusing on two projects—preparing lessons for a knitting retreat, and test knitting a lace pattern designed by Sharon Winsauer. This photo shows the lace piece completed through the first pattern chart. I’ve been knitting lace for over forty years and this is one of the most interesting patterns I’ve seen. It even uses four stitch combinations I’ve never tried before. The fiber is yummy—Alpaca with a Twist. I’ve had to make myself put it away until I get the handouts ready for the knitting retreat.
