I love knitting lace! I do not love wearing lace. I have a stack of finished knitted lace shawls probably being eaten up by bugs as I type this. I’ve made really intricate lace for fun and simpler, modern knits that I thought would be more wearable, but I am a habitual person and when it gets chilly I still don the Clapotis I made out of Noro Silk Garden Sock way back in 2009.
Wow, has it been 8 years already? Where does being “habitual” end and “in a rut” begin?
Back to the task at hand. If I’m not going to wear lace I thought maybe my table could.
Pattern: Snowflake Stole by Dorothy Siemens
Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Findley in White, 2 skeins
Of course I’m already worrying about stains so my table may not be lace-adorned after all. Is it gauche to put this under a clear plastic tablecloth? Undoubtedly. I may need to rethink this plan. That or only serve white foods at Christmas dinner.
