Lace Style on Knitty Gritty

Today was the showing of the Knitty Gritty episode, Rockin Regal Cuffs, that featured patterns from Lace Style. The segment was with Tricia Waddell (below with Vicki Howell, the show's host) and she demonstrated a couple of the lace patterns from the book.

I was lucky enough to be a knitster for this episode and got sneak peeks at a couple of patterns from the book. The first project in the show was "The Point about Cuffs." I did an alternative version of these with bamboo during the filming of the show.

The second project was actually the lace pattern from the edges of the "long long lacy gloves" in the book. They demonstrated this as a trim that you could add to the bottom of an existing skirt. For the show, I knit one up in mohair laceweight.

I just joined the KAL earlier this week and decided my next project from the book would be the Retro Redux Shrug. I've just started but am finding it a very quick knit.

I'm not sure when the Knitty Gritty episode will re-air but I think it would be fun for people on this KAL to see. Tricia brought a number of the finished items from the book on set and you can see them in the episode. The schedule is posted here if you want to investigate later. I have a few other pictures of the episode on my blog.

Look forward to seeing everyone's projects here in the future!
