Amazing Lace Challenge #4


Print O' The Waves is at the Shapeless Sack Stage, so what better for storing the stash?

Since I am knitting this in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted "Forest" instead of the recommended laceweight or cobweb yarn, this sucker is BIG. There are probably a dozen big skeins of wool inside the Print O' Waves Sack, not counting all the ones sticking out the top.

This photo was taken partway through the eyelet round. Getting into the home stretch now!

I am knitting this on a crappy old plastic circ I've had for a hundred years. Look at that one disgusted stitch, teetering on the very tip of that horrid plastic point, poised to leap to its doom rather than spend ONE MORE SECOND on that vile plastic needle. I am really covetting the Knitpicks Options right now....

Oh dear! What horrid end this would be for your lace if you ended her today.

KEEP GOING! KEEP GOING!

That does seem to be a sad way to go!

The Print O' the Waves is such a cool pattern I am looking forward to seeing it finished. Just heard the knitpicks options may be on a back order till Fall!

Not far into the edging, and I've come to the sad conclusion that I don't have enough wool left to do the big edging specified in Eunny's pattern. So I'm going through Knitting on the Edge, looking for something a lot narrower that will work. I really like this book, but damn, I wish she used charts!

I'm thinking this is a great idea! I may have to try it out just to get things under control around here!

cool idea :) maybe it could be turned into a bag to carry your stash?

I really like the green colorway you have chosen. Don't fret about running out of yarn. I'm sure you'll come up with something! Maybe Eunny herself could offer some help? Looking forward to seeing your finished lace project!
