Something new

My self confidence in knitting lace is slowly returning; I'm more than half way through the centre panel.

Instead of letting it get to me [which is easy when things are going well as they are now] I've decided to focus on other things I can do!

You'll remember that WM gave me this book for Christmas; on Boxing Day I managed - after four rip outs - to complete this. this was the first time I had followed a crochet pattern so I'm pretty happy with it as a first attempt. I'm not sure of its destiny yet - at the moment is a test swatch but it could become part of a panel in something larger.

There's more than one way to make lace!! LOL


  1. Oh, I have loved doing crochet-doilies and afghans both! Nice design.

  2. You are a lady of many talents.


  3. Oh it looks lovely. I'm itching to get back into some crochet myself.

  4. It looks great! Crochet is totally beyond me -- something about only having one needle just throws me off -- weird, huh?
