New Year's 2008 Project

Although I still have more unfinished knitting than I care to admit, I just can't let the new year begin without starting something spectacular. This year it's going to be "Lyra" by Herbert Neibling. It is the pattern that really got me interested in knitting lace. I ran across it on Michael Kaprelian's website some years ago. I'm going to knit it in some handpainted yarn by Margaret Pittman that I bought when attending a workshop with Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer. It is 100% Tencel, and the colors are very vibrant - much like silk. And with a beautiful drape. I think it's going to be a good match! Now I just need to finish as much other stuff as possible before the end of the year so I won't feel quite so guilty biting off another meaty project.

Gorgeous colorway. I know Margaret, she does lovely work, and she is such a sweet lady. Lee
