Faggoting and Beehive Lace
As you might recall, I had a heckuva time trying to get this just right. I tried knitting this swatch in three different weights of yarn (lace, sport, worsted). The "bee" pattern and vertical faggoting emerged best with sport weight yarn.
Yarn: Lana Grossa Lambswool
Needles: Addi Lace, size 4 US
Gauge: 6 sts per inch stockinette
Book: A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, "Lace," page 188
This may be my last swatch for a while, but it's not too late for you to join in the April Sweeps contest, now underway over at the Walker Treasury Project. Great giveaways for various categories including photography, most completed swatches, new participant postings - even for commenting!
For my part, I've gone back to the Forest Canopy Shawl. The signpost may read "Slow Knitter At Work" but there is definitely progress.
