Recently, you've heard me mention about using a lifeline during my lace knitting. It's in my previous frogging post and here. At the time I was writing the posts, I couldn't remember where I read about this wonderful technique. That's my problem when I absorb a lot of knitting information from magazines and books.
I was looking for another "lace" project and picked up my Fons & Porter mag to skim through the pictures. That's when I had my "Aha!" moment. The latest issue has a fantastic article on learning to knit lace and some fantastic tips. That's where my lifeline idea came from.
I typically associate Fons & Porter with quilting and their quilting notions. I was ready to dismiss this magazine at the bookstore, but decided to take a peak at their lace projects. That's where I found the Petal Tam (hat) and Lacy Green Scarf patterns that's on my to do list. I figured for the two patterns, it was worth getting this magazine. I'm glad I did as the knitting lace tips were an added bonus.
Some of the garments and accessories in this magazine, cover different age groups and interests.
If you see this mag, just open it up and take a peek. If anything, take a look at the knitting lace article.
