Lace on my mind

This is all very thrilling. I have started the building blocks to designing my very first shawl. It’s a little bit intimidating – lace is so intricate and the thought of being able to produce a soft, flowy, angel like garment from scratch makes me think that its going to be impossible for me to accomplish.

Still, if there is one thing I am totally enjoying its the feeling of creativity this all brings. It’s much more fun to create a concept of a design in your head first rather than following a pattern someone else designed. And to think, when it’s done, it will be something completely created by you from start to finish! Yikes.

At the moment I have been pouring over my stitch dictionary picking out favorite lace patterns that I would like to include in my shawl. there are so many to choose from. I’ve started swatching one and so far so good. I have an idea in my mind of what I want the shawl to look like, but I need the building blocks to match up to the idea.

I will post a picture of the first lace swatch once its ready.

Fun times!

Much love

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my cousin were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a book from our local library but I think I learned better from this post. I’m very glad to see such great info being shared freely out there…
