L is For...

L is For...

A fine open fabric, typically one of cotton or silk, made by looping, twisting, or knitting thread in patterns. Lace is sometimes considered the pinnacle of knitting, because of its complexity and because woven fabrics cannot easily be made to have holes. Some consider that "true" knitted lace has pattern stitches on both the right and wrong sides, and that knitting with pattern stitches on only one side of the fabric, so that holes are separated by at least two threads, is technically not lace, but "lace knitting".

Lace knitting can combine simple stockinette with the yarn overs.

Whatever the level of difficulty, lace knitting is my number one favorite thing to knit!

Talk to you later,
