Anxiously waiting

My name is Lark. I live in Utah and have never tried a lace pattern before. Margaret assures me I can do this, so with her encouragement I have decided to try. I am going to use 800 yards of handdyed laceweight cashmere I bought at the SpinOff Annual Retreat in Park City, Utah last November. I think I will try size 7 needles and see how the fabric drapes. IF I can make it through Chart A that is! Anxiously awaiting my pattern so I can join you all.

Hi Lark
I just wanted to tell you that you can do this! I didn't think I could, either. But once you get the hang of it you won't want to go back to the old way. I was ready to chuck it all, but then all of a sudden it just came to me. Hang in there and don't be afraid to ask for help. This group is wonderful.

You can do it. It is knitting, one stitch at a time, and we are here to walk with you! That is what this is about! You can do it!

Thanks for the encouragement. If you look at my blog, Heart of a Lark, you will see the level of knitting I have been able to do so far. Pretty basic. I seem to like pattern knitting, or color work where I can grasp the repeat and knit mindlessly. That is probably a result of my insane life. But all of that is changing now. I feel a shift in the universe. Mary, I want you to know that I went out to Hanne Falkeborg (sp?) 's site last night after looking at your blog. Wow. What great patterns! I want to try one of hers. First, I am finishing some butterfly lace socks for my mom, long promised and which must be delivered soon!

Have a great day. Lark
