I went shopping for new yarn about a week ago, and I decided to try something new, so I bought some worsted weight cotton yarn and this – some DMC Traditions mercerized cotton thread. I like lace, especially soft handmade lace. My mom used to tat, but I never learned how, so I decided to try crocheting some lace. Unfortunately patterns for it seem to be in short supply, and this was one of the few that I could find that I liked. (If anyone has links to nice lace patterns, be sure to let me know!)
At any rate, this is what I have finished so far. Click the picture for a better view. 😀
Oh, and here’s the address of the pattern I’m using.
Very nice! I don’t have any patterns to share, but I like the one you’re doing. What are you going to do with it?
mmmm… Actually, I haven’t decided on a use for it, I just enjoy making it. So far, the plan is to just keep going, winding it up onto a rectangle of cardboard until I have quite a bit of it, and then bring it out to use on a later project for that loving homemade touch.
Your lace is beautiful… I love it!
