Since the repetitive stress injury reared its ugly head again back in April, I have had to be very selective about what I knit. Unfortunately, socks are right out. I can work on worsted or DK weight yarn only for limited periods. I was beginning to feel really lost and uninspired until I decided to dive into some lace again. I wasn't at all certain that my right arm could handle it, but I was pleasantly surprised that it seemed to be no problem at all! I chose Winter Lace from Mountain Colors to knit a beautiful beaded Aeolian Shawl (pattern from the spring issue of Knitty.com). The beads are from Three Beads and a Button. It's fun to knit and will yield a spectacular result. I so love lace!
