Lace Skullcap

Knit on US size 3 DPNs and circular.

My first attempt at lace. Not as hard as I thought it'd be, as long as I paid really close attention to what I was doing. If I lost count it got a little hairy, but other than that not too bad.

My sister gave me a gift certificate to our local yarn store for Christmas, on the condition that I make something for myself and not someone else. I kept my promise!

This yard was simply heavenly. It is 100% Merino, fingering weight, and is hand-dyed. It's local, too! Even better! Not only do I support our local store instead of a big box, but got to chip in for a local artisan as well. Not too shabby!
