Lacy Day

Today was very lacy. I finished the first Waving Lace sock for the . I really like the way it turned out. I bought the Lorna's Laces yarn off the clearance shelf. They only had one skein of each colorway--Vera and Valentine--but I thought they went together well. Now that the sock is complete I believe I was right.

I also got instructions to make a honey bee in lace from one of my fellow campers. Cheryl had a wonderful little shawl at camp that was covered in violets and had these honey bees around the border. I thought they were fascinating and adorable. She found the instructions and forwarded them to me this morning. I immediately grabbed yarn and needles and made one.

Maybe Cotton-Ease and size 10 needles are not ideal for lace? Anyway, I think the bee is as cute as the dickens. Now I need to find a project to slip him into.
