One of the Stealth Projects - Revealed!

I've decided to let one of my Stealth Projects see the light of day. This will make it easier for me to work on it. Otherwise, I'd have to work on it and work on blog fodder and I wouldn't get much done at all on either one. This is a pattern I'm working up for beginning lace knitters and will include a tutorial on basic lace techniques and reading charts. I'm knitting it in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silkmo in the LunaSea colorway. This yarn has a slightly heavier core than Kid Silk Haze, but it's still a laceweight kid mohair. Being a fluffy yarn, it can be knit on US size 8's and will work up pretty quickly. Another option, for those who don't want or don't want to deal with the fluff factor would be to knit it in a fingering weight yarn. My own first lace knitting was the infamous Birch, knit in Kid Silk Haze in the wonderful but now discontinued color Poison.
Obviously it could have used with a bit more "hang time" before I took this picture, but you can see it in all it's Birch-y glory here.

I am finally back with my computer running again so I have the ability to go see my favorite people.

Your work on your drum carder is awesome.. I need to practice on mine ... I have some wool that NEEDS to be carded or sent out and I'm too cheap to send out.

What does the brush on the top do? Never seen one of those!!

Blessings
