:thinking: ummmmm. :XX: New to the site and New to knitting. so, rubbing my chin is something I do often!! :blush:

I recently bought several skeins of yarn from knitpicks--
Mostly lace yarns *Shimmer* & *Aplaca Cloud*

Need Ideas, UMMMM...... :thinking:
I tried a simple lace pattern using shimmer (from knitpicks)in "mist" color--but it didn't work out. :?? The lace seems very thin--should lace yarn be very thin? and if so what pattern best fit the *hand dyed silk/aplaca blend lace.

The pattern shoud be fairly simple--**always ready for a challege if the pattern is extra beautiful.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Quick BIO. :heart:
I'm an artist, paint murals (especially for shildren) SAHM for now, my son is 2 yrs. old. I hope to return to the classroom as a talented art teacher~when he is older .

oh! I was thinking about ordering some of Shimmer so I could knit this up:

This pattern is for a beginner (me!) and it specified a lace weight.

Have fun! Let me know how that yarn is, I haven't put in an order yet.

Welcome, knitbebe! *wave* This is a great place to come for help.


Thanks for the pattern, Hippo! I printed it out. Silver will like this one, it calls for Quiviut yarn! :lol:
