Summer School – Lace – Calceiform

I’m taking a bit of time off this month, but I wanted to make sure you had something to do while I’m napping (or, more likely, sweeping out the garage, getting drywall dust  out of my cabinets, or planning next year’s projects…but napping sounds better).

On Mondays, I’ll introduce a topic or skill and provide a bunch of links and resources to help you learn more. Later in the week, I’ll show off a few favorite patterns so you can do some homework.  The featured patterns will be on sale for one day each, so come back each weekday to see if there’s something that catches your eye!

Feeling like maybe you can do this lace thing (you can)?  Like maybe it’s just plopping the occasional intentional hole here and there (it is) and that you’re ready to dive in (you are)?  Yeah, I think you can too!  How about giving Calceiform a try.

If you’ve been here for any length of time at all, you’ll know I have a soft spot for slippers (yes, yes there are more slipper patterns in the works).  They’re a perfect canvas for trying out all sorts of things…enough room to do something pretty, but not so big it feels daunting (I’m looking at you, giant shawls…right at you…you just take too long and you know it).

These let you show off an absolutely gorgeous little leaf motif (yes, yes leaves really are the most lacy thing to knit, I’m not even going to pretend otherwise), but also give you plenty of plainer fabric to catch your breath on.  I mean really, that lacy panel is only a few inches wide.  You can totally do this.  And they’re so much faster than socks!

Calcieform is 25% off just for today with the code SUMMER SCHOOL (technically, it’s 12:01 am to 11:59 pm eastern time on Thursday, July 11, 2019 if you want to get very particular).  Come back tomorrow for another lacy favorite!
