ohhhh, Calamintha that stuff is :drool:
cookworm, I’ve done a feather & fan pattern, in the dreaded homespun. And I really liked it. With the responses I’ve gotten I think maybe I was wrong in my post. I guess I have done lace before :oops: oops, I didn’t know that some of the stuff I’ve done was considered lace projects. Actually feather and fan was the second project I did, (I made a lapghan).
Maybe I should have stuck with the I want to knit with lace weight yarn. For some reason I haven’t really branched out in terms of yarn weight. I pretty much stick with worsted or DK weight yarns, with a little bit of dabbling in heavy worsted. :shrug:
jodstr2, I love the branching out pattern. I am planning on making that for a charity event and they are going to raffle it off. Hopefully to raise money for a prison ministry program that my mom is involved in. They go into the prison for the weekend (sleeping in hotels or army barracks at night) and they work with the women or men in the prison. Many of the prisoners are in for life sentances, so they’re not doing it to look good for the parole board.
Thank you all for your responses. I can’t tell you all how much I appriciate this board and all of the people on it. It’s very refreshing in this day & age to see a place of such positive attitudes and helpfulness for totally unselfish reasons. Believe me when I say, there are definately days when just reading the posts on this board and the positive/humerous/helpful comments made by people here have saved my sanity.
In my job I see a lot of negativity/horrible things and I check this board every break and lunch period to reboot. [size=6][color=red]Really thank you everyone. [/color][/size] You never know when that humerous little comment or :roflhard: <— smiley icon will help someone get through the hard/frusterating/exhausting times.
