WIP - Knitted Lace Wedding Garter
Hi Everyone!

I've been pretty slow about knitting lately. I just moved across country to LA and am looking for a job. Together those things take 150% of my time! Thankfully, I've got a list of projects a mile long for the summer/early fall. Here is the first. It's a knitted lace garter for my best friends wedding. I'm in my third repeat and it's not too bad of a knit but it is like working with toothpicks and dental floss. I'm using size 0 needles and 30 crochet cotton..

Here is the pattern: http://www.internationaloldlacers.or...illettPOM.html

I've seen a couple of people on Ravelry wear it flat tied with silk ribbons instead of gathered like a traditional garter. I'll post pics of the finished project...I can't wait to see what it's like blocked!

It really is! My fingers feel so clumsy when I'm knitting this!

You sure have a special friend. She should treasure this forever and save it for her little girl (hopefully) one day. This is something that can be passed down for generations. It's going to be beautiful!

wow, not only is that gorgeous, but your tenacity in doing it on such small needles is wonderful! I can't work on anything smaller than 2mm! My fingers and hand starts cramping right away, and I get a horrible twinge for days afterwards...

hopefully the recipient realizes how special a gift this is
