Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Chinese Lace

Many of us devoted Barbara Walker Treasuries lovers have used the odd pattern to create a knit item. We may have fiddled a bit with the pattern to make it fit our gauge or project. But few have gone to the extent that Angela at Knititude has. She has taken what is already a complex lace pattern (2 charts friends for this one stitch pattern) and created several beautiful variations on a theme. The last one she posted which combines ribbing and the Chinese lace stitch is pure perfection. Go look.

I can hardly wait to see how the completed sweater looks on her. I love how it looks so far. And to be honest it looks a damn sight better then a lot of the faux funk or urban young cool that is thrown at us in magazines as uber original and fresh.

Nice to see a creative brain at work

I really agree with your comments about the faux fur that is in all the magazines. I collect lace patterns obsessively (though don't knit them as much as I would like) It is great to see fine knitting, with a bit of interest and challenge.
