I was trying to think of a way to describe this little piece. Esoteric came to mind because lace seems cryptic, complicated; it hides yet it reveals. It also means intended for or understood only by a particular group - in this case, knitters.
Broadripple Socks from Knitty but am bemused about the stretch. Am I supposed to knit these kind of tight to get gauge?
An exciting thing happened today at lunch. Well, exciting to me because work is so yuck these days. I'll explain that in a later post. Anyway. A coworker taught me how to do simple crochet! She's a crochet gal and such a good teacher. I've been meaning to do this on my own but crochet was befuddling, at least in the books I looked at. Now I get it. The fingers still want to do it in a knitting kind of way but that's OK. Now I can do some of the fancier edging that I was afraid of before.
Until the next day in the life.....
