It's time for a lacy summer again!

Yep, here in the southern hemisphere the days are getting longer and warmer again. So its a good time to join in some lacy fun. Bellsknits is starting up A Long Lacy Summer again. Last year I found it a good incentive to get through a number of lace projects and I hope to do the same this summer.

This time round my challenge will be to finish a few lingering projects. The one that has been around the longest is my Maltese Shawl. All though this only has a 6 row pattern repeat you do need to pattern every row. And the fact that I chose to do this in a fine mohair doesn't make matters any easier but I am determined to get it done this summer.

My other challenge is a large one - queen size in fact. I want to complete my Summer Squares blanket which I am knitting in a 4 ply cotton. This is easy knitting - just a lot of it!

Then there is my Dark Star stole that needs to be finished. I have just started on the edging and I hope to finish it by the end of the month.

And finally I also want to start some new lace projects 'cause I have pretty yarn that is calling my name!

Anyone else going to join me in some lacy fun?

Patterning every row is a challenge for me - it's like my brain needs a shut off every row or so!

Goodness gracious, you are going to be very busy. Wish that I could knit lace. I am very intimidated by lace.

Always up for knitting lace, but it is time for warmer winter knits here in North America. Can't wait to see all your projects. :)

Good luck with everything! I am in awe at your lace knitting skills to be able to do so much.

Sounds great with the comming summer! Here it's some snow in the air, not fun at all :-(

I really looks forward to see more of all those great things.

Take good care of yourself!
