Here’s another awesome knit by my 13-year-old daughter–and her first lace knit. Talia, complimentary of Knitty Spring 2008 edition, is well written, easy to follow, and also a load of fun to knit.
Once you’ve done the first 18 rows, it’s a breeze! The stockinette areas are broken up with boootiful scroll lace, garter and ribbing to keep it interesting…nice curvey back and very flattering front. The attention to detail for shaping is fantastic. It’s a little tight but nothing the magical blocking couldn’t fix. Though I haven’t made one yet, I love it–sides and back all knitted in one, no seams, and no second side syndrome. Only seams are the shoulders. She finished it in two days but took her weeks to find the perfect buttons.
Next up will be some spinning progress. Stay tuned.
