Picking up a new craft

25 Mar

Apparently, knitting and sewing and crochet and jewelry-making are not enough for me, because I started something else.  Inspired by the brilliant patterns over at Stitch Diva, I started teaching myself hairpin lace.



It’s pretty, in progress.  I’m not sure I’m a total convert, yet–it still feels cumbersome, and my first attempt at a project turned into a slippery disaster of a tangle. But it seems that if there’s one more way to turn yarn into something wearable, I should at least give that a chance.
