So In Love!...With Lace Knitting

I never thought I would say it, but I think I'm actually starting to prefer knitting over crochet. It's all thanks to lace knitting cause it's so pretty! I have a short attention span, so lately I've been working swatches in colours I like and rippin' em out again...check out my experiments bellow...

This pattern is from the Knitting Fool website, and it's called Openwork Diamonds 3. Click here for the link to the pattern. I work mostly in acrylic yarn, and none of these have been blocked, so they could probably look much better!

The photo above is a sample from Red Heart's Knit seaside Waves Knitting Pattern which you can find here on their website. I love the way lace looks when the light shines through it! For the longest time I wanted to make a crochet sea creature afghan for my bed, but I think I'lluse this pattern to knit it instead. Not bad for a newbie using acrylic yarn!
