Badass lace knitter!

I am so proud of completing my first lace project -- the pattern is Tilting Ladders and I found it via Knitswreck's Ravelry page. It's from the Barbara Walker Treasury of knitting patterns. Details are on my ravelry page, but it's knit in Rowan Wool/Cotton on Size 7 needles. It took me a while to get the pattern working correctly (mistakes and ripping out) but once I did, I was cruising. This scarf will be used for a Silent Auction at my son's school and I hope someone takes a liking to it! Given my propensity for starting things and giving up when they get difficult, I am very pleased that I stuck with this. It's inspiring me to consider more lace knitting.

I haven't been posting much. My knitting output is not very high although I am always knitting (or buying yarn)! I just bought a kit to knit the Blooming Cotton Scarf in teal and am looking forward to that. I also plan to knit myself a good looking and good fitting cardigan that will flatter my figure. If you have any ideas, please let me know.
