First off, Strings and Purls is hosting a contest on her blog to celebrate her blogoversary! So, go on over and check her out.
Now onto other news. Nothing major to report in terms of knitting, however, I have made some additions to my yarn stash. I ordered the Knit Picks lace sampler, Sea View and it’s LOVELY! I took pictures of it for my stash section on Ravelry, so I can post pictures of it here.
Very pretty stuff, and I’m very excited about what projects could come of them. I’m already dreaming of potential wedding ideas involving lace … mmm …
I also swung by Chapters after work today and picked up a new book (yes, we’re still on the the lace topic). Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby. It’s lovely and has more to it than I initially noticed. Lots of patterns, lots of charts, a lot of instruction for those of us new to it, lots of pictures, and a whole section at the back dedicated to technique. It’s awesome.
