  1. I love to knit lace...it is addicting and it is also exciting to see it "bloom" into something totally new after blocking.
    Your lace patterns are gorgeous! I am a fan/customer of your jewelry too!

  4. My very first finished project was a large lace shawl. While socks hold the majority of my heart lace seems to fill that girly nitch that I so often overlook. It's pleasing and soothing to work. :D

  5. I love having a lace project going as well as a no thinking project, depending on my frame of mind.

  6. The best thing about knitting lace is when you block it! That glob of mush is magically transformed into a thing of beauty.

  11. Lace is what I knit when I want to escape into a pattern from the problems of everyday life.

  12. I love knitting lace, decision of what pattern to choose & how it just blooms when you block the final piece. I'm considering taking one of your classes, just to learn & finesse my techniques.

  13. I'm in a bit of a lacey phase of my knitting life at the moment! It seems all the projects are some form of lacework... I love to see it grow and to see how the careful deliberate placement of holes in our knitting can turn it into something stunning!
    Thank you so much for the chance to enter this giveaway!

  15. I do love to knit lace! I enjoy the rhythm of a simple lace pattern. Haven't yet knitted much lace with intricate lace patterns, or any lace shawls. Clarus and Skywalker are gorgeous!

    Congratulations on the Craftsy course!

  22. i have become addicted to knitting lace - from watching it grow as I knit to blocking the finished piece when all it's beauty has bloomed. I can be reached at tsmscarp@sover.net

  23. Count me in! I've been having a ton of fun knitting lace this summer, making shawls and socks for fall and holiday. It's a wonderful break from the heavy winter knits. Your designs are lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Both are beautiful patterns, and the yarn is yummy looking. I feel I am ready to do a harder lace shawl than I have yet tried.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I haven't knit much lace, but I sure do have a lot of it. When I do knit lace, I've always had fun with it! Right now I'm knitting the Baby-Blanket-That-Won't-End, but the end is in sight...perhaps I'll pick up something lace as my next project!

  26. Have been drooling over these 2 patterns since I saw them on Craftsy. Have never knitted lace before but am ready to give it a shot!

  30. What super designs. I like lace knitting a) the sense of satisfaction when a project completed, b) affordability, if one is on a limited budget the lace knitting projects take a fair while to complete, so I am not constantly needing to buy yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love knitting with lace but I haven't actually knit lace with lace yarn yet. It has been in the back of my mind to do so for quite a while so maybe this is my chance? :)

  39. Have started cautiously into the world of lace knitting and find it so rewarding ! I absolutely LOVE Clarus with the central double spine detail and pointy tips, just a lovely twist on the trad triangle shawl to make it stand out from the crowd. Looks do-able for a relative lace newbie like me to do too,...:)

  48. I have only knit lace once before but I loved it! I think my favourite part of knitting lace, or anything, is seeing the end product. After knitting, washing and blocking, I love seeing a lovely (something) sprawled out on my couch in its lovely lacey goodness!

  56. I would love to win either of your lovely patterns. I'm happy we didn't have to choose one because they are both so lovely. Lace knitting helps me take my mind off of the less pleasant things trying to clutter my brain. rosebudscott1 at yahoo dot com.

  57. Lace knitting is a firm part of my life. I love knitting lace! I knit shawls and scarves for myself, family and friends. Not really ornate patters like the Niebelung tablecloths, they are beautiful - but I prefer wearable patterns that fit into our modern lifestyle.

    Good Luck to all the commenters for this contest :)

  58. I just love to knit AND TEACH lace. Absolutely love your new patterns! The Clarus is breath taking!

  59. I love knitting lace. There ars so many nice yarns and pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Knitting lace is addictive, watching the shapes grow, I'm always saying "just one more row" as the night gets later and later... Lace is almost as bad as cables that way for me. Leads to many an exhausted morning.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love knitting lace, most of all knitting shawls in lace patterns. Even with something that is not that common at all to use like sock yarn. Never a cold neck or head with a nice warm shawl for the winter. No matter how many holes there are in!

    Speaking of holes (is there a more posh name for it in English?): a friend of mine took her five year old daughter with her to the knitting club. Afterwards the girl told her mother that she didn't understand that there were people knitting holes on purpose in their knitwear, while she was so hard trying to learn to knit and not make holes ;-)

    That is why repeat this over and over again: a day without knitting is a day without laughter!

    Have a nice weekend, all! Ciao, Fleur (----> Fleurtje Eliza on Ravelry)

    P.S. Love the Clarus Pattern!

  62. I love to knit lace. I love to see how tiny and wrinkly it is, and then when you block it, it shows the lace pattern beautifully. I can't wait to knit your newest patterns!

  83. I was knitting simple things occasionally for 20 years. Then a friend showed me the beaded mitts in your 3fer pattern, and I was totally energized to learn new techniques. Knitting is so much fun now! Among other things, I've made 4 lace scarves, rectangle shape, and I was just contemplating whether I could handle stepping up to a shawl when you announced your online class and the Skywalker pattern. The pattern is gorgeous and the class is coming at just the right moment for me. I will be signing up for the class and knitting the shawl one way or the other, but I'd love to win some yarn!

  88. I'm afraid to try a big lace project. I made a cowl and a simple shawl (most of the texture in the shawl came from short rows and/or changing needle sizes) but am afraid to try a full size shawl with a true lacy pattern. One of these days I'll take the plunge

    ReplyDelete
  89. w00t! I have only done lace scarves. I don't know which kit I would pick, both patterns are awesome! Thank you Laura!

  90. I always love your designs. The amethyst color is gorgeous. I like how you can take 1 or 2 skeins of a yarn and make such a beautiful piece of clothing. I love to knit lace.

  91. Knitting lace is the greatest! Not only does it really impress people, I always think it's magic when I block it and the beauty of the piece comes out.

  92. Oooooo ... I'd love to knit up either of those gor-gee-ous shawls with those beautiful yarns :-) I "discovered" lace knitting this past winter and certainly could use something in my 2011-2012 winter stash! Thank you for sharing your purls of knittin'dom! Maggie

    I enjoy lace knitting probably more than any other knitting. I find it facinating to watch a pattern develop. You can choose a pattern for easy TV knitting or one that requires complete silence and a clear head. The results ae always spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I really love many of the awesome lace items that others knit, but so far haven't attempted any myself. Really like your "Skywalker" shawl.

  111. I think Clarus may be the shawl I've been looking for for my wedding shawl... Seeing as how it's in October, I can't be too crazy. I love that Oyster color which will match my ivory dress so well! I love knitting lace but have hardly knit any this year. My heart hasn't been in it and I've been doing a lot of stockinette. Maybe the changing of the seasons will help me change that.
    thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I have just started knitting so have done pretty basic pieces. But I greatly admire lacework and want to learn how to do it. And shawls are my passion! So the two seem a perfect match.

    If I can scrape up enough money I want to take your lace shawls class. However, I get most of my yarn at second hand stores so you can see I am on a limited budget.

    Your work is magnificent. Hopefully someday I will be able to emulate it to some degree.

    Thanks for letting me look.

  135. I haven't had anyone to knit me lace yet, so it's fortunate that I knit for myself! And anyone else I can gift it to. It's such a pleasure and surprise seeing the finish, blocked product - and I'm always amazed that I actually made something so intricate and beautiful!

  136. I love to knit lace, and the best part has got to be the blocking - when it goes from a crumpled bit of knitting, into something beautiful!

  137. I fairly new to lace shawls but would love to knit one of your designs!

  138. I do love to knit lace! The intrigue of a pattern row followed by the soothing sameness of a purl row - knitting bliss!

  139. I love to knit lace-because it's both challenging and a mystery watching your rows of knitting slowly become a fabric. Particularly the patterns that contain an "aha!" moment and somehow yours always have those!

  140. What beautiful designs and yarn! I have knit a few pieces of lace but not much. I really should just dig in and let the needles fly this fall so that I can have something as beautiful to wear.

  141. I am a big fan of knitting lace, I like how the patterns develop as your knitting them and then also completely transform when you're finished and the lace is blocked out :D

  144. I started just a couple of weeks ago a test for a shawl, my first shawl ever! I must say I'm loving it. I had never knitted with charts, thinking they were a mess, but I wascompletely wrong!
    I hope to win one of your shawls, they are simply wonderful!!!

  151. Well, Laura, I must admit that I am a lace virgin - that's right, I have never attempted a knit lace pattern before! Although, if I should win this giveaway (hint, hint!) I would happily take on the challenge! Hahaha! Have a wonderful day, dear!

  152. I have been obsessed with lace knitting for about 6 months now!I would love to win and, I may have to forgo my self imposed yarn/pattern diet (I have sooo much stash) to buy the online lessons. I have to assess this...

  153. I'm just learning lace...so not very skilled or fast...but I love the look when it is done!

    Thanks!

  154. Right now I have a love/hate relationship w/ lace...but every time I successfully complete a lace project, it gets a little more love and a little less hate! I would love to win!

  155. I love to knit lace. Not just shawls, but socks too :)

  156. I'm learning to love lace! I am knitting my first lace project - I started it over a year ago, and after returning to it from a break, it's moving along really nicely. It's fun to see how making an intentional hole in one's knitting turns into a pretty pattern.

    I discovered the magic of lace while making a baby blanket for a friend as a shower gift, and I've become addicted :D I love how it starts out all scrunchy on the needles, you block it and then - voila! Something beautiful appears! It's my favorite thing to knit!

    ReplyDelete
  161. I love to knit lace, primarily in shawls, because it's impressive. I also like it because gauge isn't absolutely critical. If you're off a smidge, it will still look beautiful. If size is a concern, you can block it smaller or larger.

    ReplyDelete
  162. I am just starting to knit lace I have done one shawl and am starting my second when the box arrives with the yarn I ordered a few weeks ago. I have also done some lacy socks and a few other smaller items but I am addicted. I love your shawls.

  179. I love lace because it never gets boring. I also really enjoy the challenge of fixing errors I've made in a lace pattern without actually ripping it.

  180. I am warming up to lace knitting. At first I thought of it as 'hole-y' knitting, but now I see the beauty and also the mental stimulation. I can crank out stockinette pretty fast, but my brain isn't engaged. Thanks for the chance to win!

  186. I have discovered my love for lacy shawls about one and a half years ago, but only after knitting the Swallowtail Shawl in a worsted weight have I realized how much I love lace, and not always necessarily in lace weight, but in any weight yarn! Thank you for a fab giveaway!! I can be found as Knitmish on Ravelry...

  189. Lace scared me at first - I heard people talking about these monstrous 800+ stich cast ons and thought no way!!! But I've learned there are lots of wonderful SMALL lace patterns out there! Your designs are lovely, and I look forward to your Craftsy lace class :)

  190. I have just jumped into the world of lace, and I am totally in love! I really love the silk camel blend in purple, it fits the pattern you designed so well! Thanks so much for sharing! Spinfoolish@gmail.com

  191. I have recently started knitting lace and have been stymied by my apparent lack of counting skills. Knit one, rip two it seems like some days. Still, I keep giving it a try because I think knitted lace looks so lovely! inglisl (at)gmail(dot)com

  194. I love to knit lace and really want to do it better....that is why I have signed up for your class already. Plan on starting it after an upcoming surgery (will be house bound sort of, no driving for 2 months!) So, I really need good projects to keep me busy. Lace is so interesting and makes such pretty designs. I am coveting Breathless yarn already and am contemplating buying some for another project. This would give me a great chance to try it out. Sounds like gorgeous yarn.
