I've never worked on lace, but listening to your interview with Myra Woods intrigued me! I especially like the idea of being able to have an overall structure "recipe" and then playing with the details on the inside of the lace as you go.

I've seen Myra on Uncommon Threads - she is such a creative and "free" fiber artist, which inspires me.
I love lace too, and have a couple lace projects OTN. Currently I'm passionate about shawlettes.
Enjoy a wonderful holiday season with family and friends!

I live eat sleep lace knitting, belonging to the Lace Guild here in California. As the saying should say "one can never have enough lace"

Kim said...

There is nothing more satisfying to knit than lace. Nothing with greater alchemy - the power to transform from a formless little knot into an angel wing.

Kay said...

I love your podcast and have been listening since the beginning, but this is the first time I have left a comment. Keep up the great work!! I love lace, but have only successfully finished one project, but would love to try with the Madelintosh yarn - the colors are all so gorgous! Haven't see the book yet in person, but sounds like a fun book!

Murf5048 said...

Hi Alana,

Love your very professional done podcast! I have actually attempted lace and being a relatively new knitter (less than two years) I spent hours just trying to get six stitches on double points to make a pi shawl and had to give up! After hearing your interview with Myra, I thought why not enter and see what happens! Thanks!!! Happy Holidays!!!

Luwana said...

I love this yarn--the hard part for me is finding a pattern that is worthy of it. I did let my DH pick out some for a pair of socks for him while we were visiting San Francisco (Imagiknit), but I'm wondering if he would remember if I snagged it back for me :-P
