Amazing Lace Challenge #1

Meet Team Karin

I have been green with envy over the lace projects I have seen on other blogs and decided to take the plunge into it as well. I had subscribed to the Knitty D and the City podcast and viewed Knitty D's and Wendy's sites (yes you gals do make a difference) and was so impressed. So, I called Rosies Yarn Cellar in Philadelphia and ordered the Half Pi Shawl pattern (I will be making Grace's version). I ordered Zephr yarn in agean blue. This weekend I will cast on and it will be the start of the summer of lace.

Of course if I was going to do this I had to join Amazing Lace. This will give me the encouragement I need to complete the shawl. Thanks to Rachel and Theresa for making this happen!

Hi there, Karin,

Found you from the Dishcloths group, but wanted to give you a tip to use bamboo needles with lace weight yarn as it really helps "hold" those stitches on the needles a little better! Have fun with your lace, it's my favorite kind of knitting!
