Another secret revealed!

Having these test / sample knitting projects makes for great blog material. Yesterday I told you about my Sock Love. Today I get to share a bit of lace. At the end of the summer I started working on a sample knit for Nelkin Designs - a doily-turned-blanket sort of sample, Centrino. I think I hinted at it here and there - the super secret project, the white project of dooooooom...except not really. I liked knitting this - I did find it to be addictive and satisfying to work on! One of the best parts was the blocking! From blob to BOOM!
I used the full-sized mattress in the guest bedroom and every singe pin I could find. Magical!

Obligatory couch shot?

I found myself stuck for better ideas for styling / photographing this item - tricky too because I didn't dare let the Lorax or Jackson near it :) I love this photo that Laura has of it:

Happy sigh - I'm really proud of that knit. As it was a sample, it's not mine to keep, but I will certainly think about knitting this again at some point.

WOW, Bec, that is stunning!!! So intricate. As always, floored by your talent!

And I also love that outdoor chair shot — styling knitting in nature is always pretty, I think!
