Fern lace finished,200 pins later
It's made from sock wool, 448 metres, from Live 2 Knit. I really did this as an experiment in lace for Bell's Summer of Lace. I do lacy insertions etc and I've done a shawl which taught me a lot but really have not done much lace. I still find laceweight a bit intimidating and sock wool was a progress step to it.
However, I have been eyeing off some lacier patterns. I still have a couple of other projects on the go, so will think about what's next.

The colour was hard to capture. In some lights it's quite green. others show it as sort of washed out. I think this will be for me as it's very soft and squishy around my neck and is good and long so can be worn several ways. However, 200 pins later makes me see why regular lace knitters use blocking wires!
