L is for Lace

L is for knit lace.  At it's simplest, lace is nothing more than adding intentional holes in your knitting.  Creating lace pieces is such a delight!!  Initially the knit piece looks like a crumply mess, but once it is blocked - magic!!  The lace opens up and becomes a beautiful thing!!

Here is an example of before and after blocking lace.  This is Haruni and was my first "fancy" lace shawl that I knit for myself.  I love it!!!

And a close up because I love this design!!


  1. That is amazing and so beautiful. You are quite talented with knitting needles.

  2. Beautiful lace work! I clearly need to improve my blocking skills. The difference is amazing!

    1. I am convinced blocking is pure magic!! It never fails to amaze me to see how things change with blocking!!
