Hello Lace Knitters!
I hope you're as excited as we are about the new Victorian Lace Today. The patterns are fabulous and the book itself is a work of art. I don't know about you, but there's just something wonderfully classic about lace, yet it is still contemporary enough to have a place in today. As the weather turns cold in the northern hemisphere I love a lace wrap for the office or that special evening out. And a lace scarf is always gorgeous under that winter coat. For those of you living in the south (like Ms Jacqueline), this is the perfect time of year for throwing your favorite lace over your shoulders before heading out to dinner and a movie.
We are imagining this knit along as an ongoing thing where knitters can post for advice or thoughts on patterns and yarn or just share their stunning projects. As with any KAL, it is what all the participants make it. We want this KAL to be something everyone can enjoy so therefore there is no time limit. Start knitting today, next month or next year and finish your project when it suits you. Lace should be savoured and enjoyed.
We're so glad you've decided to join us. Have a great time and good luck choosing your first project (personally, that's going to be the hardest part).
