We are happily knitting along on our lace projects

It seems like every time I log in to my Ravelry account there are loads more posts in the Lace KAL thread! It's a chatty place with no end of inspiring lace projects, hints and tips.

I’m pretty sure that’s going to make them extra cosy when they are done.
