Back at the health club...sitting poolside (back to limited hours now for me) while my son plays and makes friends. Starting on the Irish Crochet lace scarf shawl or whatever the heck it's going to be. Usually the technique is worked in fine cotton thread, but many contemporary fiber artists are using the technique with standard yarns. For my project, the roses, etc will be worked in a laceweight mohair-wool blend in a light brown the color of cinnamon toast while the background netting will be of baby mohair in a natural pale rosy beige. I don't have enough of either yarn to make anything much with, but the colors match, and they are both mohair....
