Lace edging

Captain’s Log, Stardate 06.19.2007

I came across this neato webpage the other night:

Knitting Patterns for Lace Edgings Etc

So, curious about making lace, I knitted a few swatches from the Normandy Lace Edging pattern.

Isn’t this totally neat???? My swatch, unfortunately, does not look as nice as the pattern picture, possibly because I don’t block very well, possibly because I’m still a beginning knitter.

Maybe I’m reading too many historical romances lately, but it makes me want to go back to the fashions of gowns and shirts dripping in lace. I suppose I could knit some lace and edge the sleeves of a long-sleeved shirt with it. That would be a cool way to refresh an old shirt.

  1. Hi Camy!

    Sorry for not being around for so long. Been busy preparing for my birthday celebration (tom) and my wedding in August. I see you've got a lot of things going.. Congrats on the new cover! It looks lovely!
