Lace!
I am knitting lace from Jackie at HeartstringsKnitting. I signed up for the lace knitting tutorial. It is lace to go on a baby sock cuff. I do not have grand-babies(grandsons are 11 and 6) but my neighbor across the street from us is having twin girls later this summer. I see some pink yarn and pink crochet thread to knit the lace for the socks in my future yarn purchases.

Oh lovely! It is always admirable when knitters expand their horizons! I love lace knitting, especially little bits of lacy stuff...like using lace on the edges of cuffs, etc. instead of plain ribbing!

The lace is so pretty. But I have to wait till I get paid again before I can make them. The hardest part of it was learning how to start the first row with a yarn over. I tried it with some baby yarn and larger needles. I have some smaller needles already for the lace, just need the pink thread.

My first thought was on starting a row with a YO in thread! Now it's

And you've got me really intrigued!

What size needles are you using for the thread?
