As with my other classes I designed a project that could teach all the skills I wanted to impart in the class. This means that while this class is all about process and learning, you do end up with Life Cycle, a gorgeous shawl or baby blanket, to show off at the end! I hadn't ever designed a square piece of lace before, so designing Life Cycle provided a challenge for me as well. Worked from the center out over a small number of stitches I teach working a circular cast on (both on double pointed needles, and on magic loop), and then jump right into chart reading, Nupps, and advanced decreases. I cover life lines, lace chart tips and tricks (written instructions are included as well), yarn and needle choices, fixing mistakes, in depth blocking, and more!
Life Cycle is a labor of love.... it is the largest lace design I've ever accomplished I spent many lovely hours this fall/winter working on it. Does anybody remember that caramel blob I tweeted about?
