I picked up my lace knitting again (after a hiatus of a year and a half!) and I've been making grand progress.
I changed the needle type and size, and things went so much better than the first time around. I started completely over, and I have about 22 inches of lace now!
And the previous attempt (shown below the piece I'm working on):
Oh, and the answer to the question? In part it is a mystery to me. I just love to make lace, be it with a tatting needle, crochet hook, or knitting needles. It takes more time, and the end result is small, but I enjoy the process, and I love the finished product!
Any ideas for what I should do with the lace once I finish it? I'm thinking of edging an apron. I don't want to make yards and yards, just enough for a smallish project!
