I have come to the realization that I love to knit lace. I see so many projects that I want to knit; sweaters with cables, mittens with amazing colorwork, socks with intricate patterns. For me those things are all about the end product. I want to make them because I like idea of the finished object. It has occured to me though, when I am truly happy, while I knit, it is always lace that I am knitting. I love the feel of the fine yarn, I love the rhythm of the yarn overs and the knitting two together, I love the sharp needles. Of course there is also the joy of the finished piece. I wear my lace shawls every chance I get. I will continue to lust after patterns with cables and colorwork. I'm sure I will cast on a project or two. But I think the projects most likely to be finished will be lace.
