So the realization is: I can Knit lace; I cannot knit it with lace weight. We took a quick overnight trip to Ann Arbor / Detroit to meet Al for a Tiger's ballgame. I was having troubles knitting a lace scarf, the photo above shows you its gorgeous color but that's as far as I got.
Yup, just a couple of inches and I bailed.
When I took out the spare skein of COSABI yarn and knit the same pattern I was hugely successful. I was giddy with joy.
So it's all about yarn weight when it comes to lace for me.
You get the sense it is the Fans' team and the park is for the Fans.
I liked it almost as much as Miller Park in Milwaukee where the Brewer's play.
We celebrated Fireman's birthday, again…with Al. We also did an early Mother's day. Al and I went to a yarn shop named BUSY HANDS in Ann Arbor. Not too much yarn overall, but what is there is really gorgeous. She quickly plucked this skein of malabrigo off the wall and I got to take it home. I see summer berries in this colorway. I also see a return to socks.
