Hope we see you there!

Sampler Stole

1.5 borders, and then just the edging, still letf to knit.


Man, I wish I could join you for your knit night! I'm a little far away, though. :-) And I'll be at swim practice.

Your stole looks great. I'm only one repeat into it, but I really like it so far. It's fun to stretch it out and see the pattern emerging.

ARGH! My husband and kid have the FLU! Can't make it this time...

For some reason, I read that as having something to do with Knights of Columbus. Anyhoo, the stole is looking lovely, I can't wait to see it all finished!

Wow that's looking pretty! You are quite the speedy knitter. It's taken me over a week to knit the same amount of border that you did in a few days!

Wow- Beautiful!

I live way to far away...another country away!

Ok, not that far...
But certainly states away.

Stunning, flat out stunning that sampler is. You are the Lace Queen.

Looking at your work makes me want to quit my job and stay home and knit. Which, of course, I can not do. Wish I could have come to your knit night thought.

I'm a new reader of your blog and when you remarked about the Columbia Knit Night - I thought maybe I could go - then saw the address!!! I live in Portland, Oregon and my first thought was the Columbia River.... Wish I could come....

Georgeous gurl, just gorgeous. You still hadn't answered my question. What do you do for a living? How do you have so much time to knit???

Absolutely lovely - a perfect demonstration of your wonderful new lace faq. How *do* you knit so much so fast and so beautifully?

Will you pick me up in philadelphia for knit night? haha...

Your sampler is gorgeous. It makes me want to go out and get the pattern.

pretty!...need i say? :)


Question: When you knit lace at a smaller gauge than the pattern calls for (i.e. Frost Flowers) how do you estimate the yardage needed? I notice it took 3000 yds(about twice what most people use for a shawl). I really like the look of your smaller gauge lace but I hate to start a shawl without knowing whether I have enough yarn.


crap! i no longer like in maryland! never thought i'd say those words.... but then i became a knitter, after 9 total Md years, now that i am a west coaster i know about the wool festival, etc.. pout.

I am just starting to knit lace as a hobby. I will certainly use your tutorial. Thank you for taking the time to put it up. I also love your Print o the wave stole.

I would be interested in a tutorial on needles. What are your favorite type, length, for which projects and why. What are the different characteristics and why are they important?
