Of course since I finished up the Flower Basket Shawl yesterday, I HAD to start a new lace project. What is it? Well the yarn is my Frostrosen handspun (originally Kitchen Sink Batts) and the pattern is the Green Moss Shawl from Heirloom Knitting. Obviously, my moss will not be green. This pattern is for a semi circle shaped shawl and it starts at the bottom edge and then works its way up (very cool and different way of starting a shawl). You start with a bit of edging, part of which you can see above and then go from there. At the moment I'm having a bit of trouble with the "going from there" part but I get confused when I have to pick up stitches from Garter Stitch - the trouble is Pink Lemon based, not pattern directions based. The pattern directions seem to be well written. Once I get the caffeine flowing, I'll sit down and see if I can't get those silly stitches picked up.
I also want to give a "head's up" to anyone who has been thinking of doing Sockapalooza 4 - SIGN UPS ARE OPEN! Head on over to The Blue Blog and read through exactly what is involved and if you want to knit some socks for a complete stranger, sign up! Who knows you could knit socks for me, or I could knit socks for you, or we could both knit socks for completely different people we've never even heard of! Oh, the suspense of it all! I'm heading over and signing up as soon as I finish this post.
