Greek, Sir, . . . is like lace; every man gets as much of it as he can.
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.
That lace is worthy of a museum collection! It must be a great joy to knit up.
I’m just back home after spending a little over 2 weeks with MJ (she had cateract surgery). She showed me an apron you made for her (about 40! years ago) with the most beautiful lace on the bib. It is still a prized possession of hers. Your grandbabies are so beautiful.
Have you ever read the book “Knitting” by Anne Bartlett? I have the audio version from the library right now. I’ve read the book twice & just get lost in the words and the story. It is lovely. It is set in Australia & the reader has uses all the accents. I think it is one that you would enjoy. I asked the library to buy the audio – $35 – $40 too steep for me – and I just got it last week. Thought I’d share the fun with you.
Take good care – the lace is beautiful:)
Oh my, Katherine, that really is beyond lovely!
