First Lace

It’s been a while since my last update on my ongoing WIP, because I’ve been too busy to get around to both the knitting and the blogging, but a recent flurry of travel by air and rail (and a new knitting class that started last night, a great father’s day gift) has given me some time to make some real progress. I still don’t have much time for summarizing the work I’ve been doing on this piece, but hopefully these pics will speak for themselves:

Progress My First Lace

First Sleeve Finished

This is my first attempt at lace work, and I’m quite pleased with the results so far. Having finished the rather plain front and back, in addition to this first sleeve, I’ve got just one more sleeve, the collar (also in the lace pattern), and final seaming to go. It’s starting to look like I might actually finish this one!
