another post! or …a 2008 fo

7 01 2009

last year i fell in love.  with lace.

it was like another addiction hit me.  socks no longer had their appeal.  i just wanted to knit lace.  and so i bought lace books and i stalked lace blogs and i loaded up the stash with lace and i dreamed lace and i knit lace and so on and so forth.

the most appealing patterns to me are those that are simple and geometric.  the maltese shawl definitely fit the bill there.  i also thought i would hate triangular shawls.  i was wrong.  (love them!)  my first triangle was actually adamas, by miriam l felton.

i wish i had more time last year to knit.  i didn’t get too many projects in.  but i did manage to knit up adamas.  and adamas was such a joy to knit i had to do an encore immediately.

the mil recieved this as a present.  and as of 25 december 2008,  she reports that she has yet to use it.  meanwhile, my own adamas (no picture yet)…has been in regular rotation with my winter wear.  (sigh).  oh well.  i did happen to snap some pics before i gave it to her in august.

Lovely and definitely deserves more wearing. Maybe she’s foolishly saving it for a ‘special occasion’…
