So I know it’s not quite Headband Season yet

But I couldn’t help myself. I knit this last night as I caught up on some American television (clearly taken advantage of my last few days in Italy).

Designing a Lace Chart

I’m currently knitting and designing a bathing suit. The middle middriff part is going to be lace. This is the most unique piece I have tried to design so far, and I decided to go all out and create my own charted lace. This is the first time I’ve created my own chart and tried … Continue reading
