lacey.

lacey by knitty really took me loooong to finish.
i´m not a perfect knitter. never was & probably never will be, but it´s fun to do, so i just knit when "it comes over me".

with lacey i´m pretty satisfied, though somewhere in between there suddenly was one stitch more on my needle... nevermind - i just k2tog the next row *coughcough*.
today i took some pics to share with you:

lacey-front lacey-back

a detail shot of the lace pattern can be seen here.

for my version i used lace weight mohair yarn by junghans.

to see the original please follow the link to the knitty archives.

obviously other people did like this pattern, too: have a look here, here and here, then go and get you some yarn and needles!

  1. My father would have asked, how something made of so many holes could take much time... I just say WOW!

  2. it's sooo beautiful!

    so sorry, I can't knit anymore.

    tonight I did some linol cutting. I had to stop now, my arm hurts. may be I should take my skull stamp to embellish the boring grey blouse?

    may be I cut out a matching bone...

    meanwhile...chapeau! for katrin.
    hurray!

    Katrin, lacey is gorgeous... I have never understood how to make these lacey things... maybe you can show me in Aachen?

  4. thanks, ladies ^^

    alex, this shrug was hidden in a box for almost half a year. i digged it out to finish it just in time for autumn.

    charlotte, take your stamp. i won´t use mine on my project, so you´re free to use yours. matching bones sounds great!

    tini - i think that liane would be the more able partner for knitting questions, but the pattern for lacey is very clear, i´m sure you can do this, too! (i mean... when I did it... everyone can do it!)
    but you will use a different color, won´t you?! ;)

  5. Cute! It's black, it's cool.. it's yours. ;)

    @tini Making lacey things is just hanging on the pattern, making loops and getting meshes together. If you got it once, it's quite easy.

  6. It's beautiful *schmacht* :-)

    Ich liebägel ja grad irgendwie mit dem Stricken. Ich brauch dringend noch ein Hobby wo man bergeweise Material ansammln kann *hust* Vielleicht liegt dieses Interesse aber auch einfach daran, dass ich grad verzweifelt und erfolglos nach schönem Strickstoff such *seufz* *zu faul für Englisch*

Well, not at all, as I am going to write you a long email describing my joy at all of the wonderful things you sent me - yes, great magazines, but the custom made gifts just for me!!! I am so lucky!! Ok, here is where I tell you that I am staying up most of the night to finish a project due tomorrow - and will not be able to send my long, happy email til then! Apologies now, and many ***THANKS*** for my wonderful package of goodies! :-) :-) :-)

  9. it took more than 6 months, kumi. but most of the time it was hidden in a big box in my wardrobe. it could be done *much* faster if you keep knitting every day!

    michele, i´m happy and delighted(!) to hear the parcel arrived & you like the stuff ^^

    ob ich jetzt zum zerschneiden stricken würde... hmmm... *grübel*
    ne. nicht wirklich. aber du hast recht. einen "richtig schönen" strickstoff hab ich auch noch nicht gesehen (jedenfalls nicht in erschwinglichen preislagen).
