Plantation Lace Square


Image hosted by Photobucket.com



Our local guild assigned a project that everyone present was giving some raw fleece (cotswold) to clean, spin and knit up 10x10 squares in a lace pattern of your choice. I wasn't at that meeting and offerd to knit a square from it so our project can be completed soon becuase we needed a certain amount of squares which we didn't have. Ben also is knitting a square to complete the project and was gracious enough to do all the finishing touches. After blocking ironing it may have shrunk but I knitted a little bigger and crochet a little border to allow for this anyway. I knitted a pattern called plantation to go along with our town's Plimoth Plantation dating back to the 17th century. it's been decided that everyone's squares will be placed on some black material and mounted so it can be displayed at different events. I think you can see the pattern with the little hunts in the photo. I didn't care much for the cotswold kinda sticky to work with from the lanolin. Some like it that way I guess. I'll have to take picture's when the project is completed. I have to clean my needles there icky......
