Amazing Lace

What a coincidence! I had been kind of planning a lace project anyway, when Theresa of Knitting Underway and Rachel of Lickety Knit came up with the idea for The Amazing Lace knit-along for this summer.

When I received this fiber, Brown Sugar (from Robin at Nistock Farms) as a Christmas gift, it immediately said lace to me. Thankfully, it cooperated and spun up very nicely. I plan on knitting the Summer in Kansas shawl pattern from Two Old Bags (gotta love that designer!). I've heard that this is a really well-written, easy-to-follow pattern. We'll just see about that. I have this love-hate relationship with knitting lace. I love it, but somehow manage to make every mistake in the book and wind up restarting many times. This time, I'm going to use lots of markers and probably the occasional "life-line".

I may have missed the cut-off to officially enter, but this is the plan for this project anyway.
