Does This Count As Lace?



I'm thinking yes.

Isabeau Shrug is one of Chez Plum's many patterns.

I'm doing it on Elann's Endless Summer Connemara in a really pretty lilac color. I love Connemara! If you are looking for a cheap and soft(after washing it's super soft)cotton yarn I recommend it.

The cuff is so pretty. The whole pattern is so feminine, it almost has a Victorian feel to it, atleast in my mind.

There's clever decreases that cause a little ridge. I love that.

And the yarn overs. I'm awful. I have to admit that I'm a bit ADD when it comes to lace. I have to count stitches every other row or so because I tend not to pay as close attention as I should. But the yarn overs are making a pattern that is perfect for the shrug. I'm enjoying this. It's a good first lace project, I think.

I finished Tempting. It's blocking. And since the sun hasn't come out since January, or so it seems, I don't know when I'll get outside to take photos. As it is these were taken on Hub's chair. If he knew that I laid knitting on his chair, I'm sure he'd do the invisible cootie spray to get the girlie funk off of it.
