This weekend, I finished blocking the first lace doilies I’ve ever knit.

The white one is from Burda #554 called “Blossoms”(25” D). This was done using Tencel 10/2.  It has a wonderfully soft feel to it, very delicate. 

The mauve one (13″ D) is from Knittted Lace by Esbenson and Rasmussen called “Tut”. 

Hello all and welcome to my world!  I’m very new to this blog business but I hope to use this as a way of displaying what I do on my daily commute into Hoboken every day.

Here is an example:

This is a picture of a lace shawl which I blocked on my living room floor.  When blocked the shawl is 72″ across the widest point.  It is from the book Meg Swansons’s “A Gathering of Lace” and it was designed by Katie Nagorney and Ann Swanson. (Wool you order, now known as Two Old Bags)

This was my first lace shawl, unfortunately, I didn’t find out about the corrections until the shawl was completed.  Didn’t have the heart to frog.  I’ll do another someday, (probably not in white as this one isn’t that practical).

Here’s a lovely scarf I made for my Mother-in-law for Christmas from a Heartstrings pattern.

I used Douceur et Soie and size 7 needles.  Knitted quite quickly (3 weeks, 2 hours per day).  It is fairly wide almost 20 inches.  Very delicate.  Love the yarn, however, really makes me sneeze.

I’ll post others over time.  Keep an eye out for other items.
