Longing for Lace

Stephanie wrote:

I've had the urge to work on a lace project - a nice, substantial shawl.  My eyes wander to various lace patterns online and in magazines. I scan my queue of projects looking for lace patterns I know I have saved for "someday".  Which pattern?  What yarn?

Until I decide I have this tidy little neck warmer to satisfy my hunger for lace.  This is Hoarfrost by Anne Hanson.

This has been a fast moving project.  Well, fast when I don't get distracted by a couple of other projects I have in the works.

This is shown in Twinkle Toes Chile Pepper.  I've been struggling with color and lighting so the color on the website is more accurate.  This pattern has wonderful texture and highlights the color variations of this yarn.  

Yes, this is destined to be a booth sample, but I'm going to start one for myself as soon as this one is off the needles.  And neck warmer projects make great go anywhere knitting.  They are a close second to socks when it comes to a knitting project that travels well.

Great idea...I'm still dragging my feet on starting the lace shawl. You've inspired me to look for a smaller project. Thanks!
