Pattern: Calamity Jane by Kirsten Hipskey (rav link)
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca Sport, 120 yards, 50 grams. Brown. 1 ball
Needles: US 6 addi lace
Mods: None. I used blocking wires to get a really nice even block on the kerchief. If you are interested in using the same yarn - after weaving in and blocking I literally had 4 inches of yarn left. This is not hyperbole.
I truly LOVED the knitting lace cast off, even though it took FOR-EV-ER. For every two stitches you are actually binding off you knit 4 rows. But still, I would do it all again in a heartbeat to get that beautiful serrated lace edge.
This wasn't an intuitive lace project - there is no rhythm to the lace and memorization is all but impossible. But it is such a little project the inconvenience of it is so worth it. Now I want Frye boots, really tight denim, and a 1970 SS El Camino to blare Heart's Barracuda. Yes, I am totally fantasizing about New Mexico, what of it?
