Welcome to the Lace Party! What started as a lace knitting workshop has evolved to a chat between fellow lace knitting lovers. We welcome you to join us. The chat is open to anyone who wants to join in - you can be as active or non-active as you choose. We used to follow a two-week pattern where one person would host; however we have decided to make the schedule more flexible to suit the needs of the hostess and the group. The next hostess will post a link to the new Lace Party (LP) near the end of this thread.

Over the years we have shared our knitting projects, lace and non-lace. We love to see photos of what everyone is knitting - finished and in progress. We also share travel stories, recipes, nature photos, and like any knitting circle, our lives. Some of our followers have even met in person. We also love to see what our online friends are up to (photos are great!).

The above is copied direct the opening for the previous Lace Party- we are getting perilously close to the magical number of 100 pages- goodness knows if the current Admin would step in and split us up, as they did of old- but we don't take that chance.

2019 has dawned grey- I can see a lightening in the cloud that has to be the sun! It will be sticky the forecast is for 24*C. We always have high humidity in Auckland!

I myself am just doing mindless- more dishrags for Norma's David. A good option when the weather is sticky. I found some very expensive Italian Organic Cotton, but it is a double knit, so is working up quite fast- which is good!
I hope to get back to the shawl/scarf in silk that I have started for my daughter Bronwen before too many more moons have passed.
When Autumn comes I will work the sleeves on the current Gansey.

We keep thinking we have reached the settled weather of Summer, and keep being fooled by Mother Nature!

Sometimes it does not happen till February- maybe this is one of those years!

Thank you, Julie for getting us started in the new year!

Hopefully it is not too hot and sticky there for you.

Thanks- JanetLee- I am hot at the moment- but more because the drier and the computer are in the same room!

Thanks Julie for keeping us on track! Sounds like you have some good projects going for the summer weather there. Organic cotton is really nice.

Wishing All the Happiest New Year
May it be Filled with Good Health, Peace, Love, Joy, Prosperity and most importantly an abundance of YARN!!

I just got to my computer today and caught up with all of you. Thanks for getting us started Julie.

Caryn, You said it all. Let me echo your wishes and add mine to it.

Have you been busy with the travel to see your Mom?

Caryn put everything very nicely!
