This quarter on Tuesdays and Thursdays I have a break between the two classes I teach—just enough time to go poking around Ravelry a bit. Today I was on a hunt for lace. I started by going to the “People” section, then scrolled down to “Your Neighbors,” which lists other Ravelers who have queued some of the same patterns I have. From there, I nosed my way over to their queues and poked around a bit. This process is a bit like diging through the closet of someone whose style you admire—you find all sorts of beauties.

Here’s a handful of what I found (with on-line links for you non-Ravelers).

Susan Pandorf’s “Crocus Pocus”:

Hazel Carter’s “Legends of the Shetland Seas”:

Kieran Foley’s “Serpentine”:

Bad Cat Design’s “Victorian Driftwood Shoulder Shawl”:

And here’s one non-lace charmer—Tuulia Samela’s “Deep in the Forest Mittens”:

    Glad to hear you’ll have some down time this quarter — and can’t wait to see what new and fab lace project you pick! thea

    Love the mittens – I ordered the pattern this morning. I hope it’s not too ambitious for a first time colorwork project.
