I'm kind of partial to lacy triangles with asymmetrical shapes. I'm working on an idea with a brioche edge. I love Elizabeth Lovich's samplers too.
Speaking of tonal, I accidentally picked exactly the right yarn for a lace shawlette. It seemed like the dye pattern exactly matched the lace pattern. Believe me, I stumbled on it. I wish I knew the magic formula for achieving this effect deliberately.mirl56 said:I've made many triangles. Looking at crescent and asymmetric shapes these days. Much prefer tonal yarns - little bit if color interest and lace patterns still look good. Don't like laceweight much, prefer fingering.
I've knitted a couple of things from Victorian Lace Today. The patterns are lovely. There is a section in the back for designing your own shawls. I've actually done one of the scarves but with a different border. It was fun working out the pattern.Lurker 2 said:Took me 17 years as I up-skilled!!!!! But in the end I completed most of it in a six month period. I really really love that border.
