Lacy experiment

I say "experiment" because I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never tried any lace-like patterns before.

I think the reason I've always avoided them is because the investment in a whole project made entirely of lace is daunting. There's a LOT of room for error and frustration there. Not to mention tears and wasted yarn. And some swearing.

So this was perfect. I mean, not the square itself (which is clearly rather imperfect), but attempting a small bit lace when there was nothing at all at stake.

Uh, if you don't count having to post the results here...

Plum-coloured and not quite right. Exactly how I feel most of the time.

I love this one. For some reason it reminds me of the rose in The Little Prince. It's very sweet.
