Laceweight scarf.

About 2 years ago I became interested in Laceweight yarn, I have been knitting since my mother taught me when I was just 4-1/2, in those days knitting was also taught at school.
I thought i would share with you one of the first scarves I made using Jamieson's & Smith cobweb wool yarn. I washed and blocked it on a home made blocking board as shown in a Laceweight knitting book.

Re: Laceweight scarf.

That is beautiful.
I love knitting lace shawls. It is so soothing and relaxing because you have to keep focused on the pattern so it doesn't offer the "weasels" a chance to take over your brain. "Go away silly useless anxiety thought, I have to count"

At this point I am giving them away to charity organizations, my kids roll their eyes at another lace shawl. My sister in Ontario uses them to decorate lamps.

Re: Laceweight scarf.

Thankyou Doug, i enjoyed knitting it.

LenaB, I am that stage where my kids don't appreciate anything hand knit also. Like you I knit these as raffle prizes or for sale for a local Cancer charity. I just love knitting lacey scarves.

Re: Laceweight scarf.

Oh the kids and son-in-law love the socks and hats and cowls. Their life styles just don't include lace shawls. There was just the wedding shawl for one. My granddaughter loves them and wears them but she can only wear so many.
