The Amazing Lace
to me those have always been the two most beautiful words
in the English language.
the expression of an adventure of his soul.
-William Somerset Maugham
Get out your lace and get ready for a summer adventure! Rachel and I are taking our lace places it has never been. She's knitting lace in Europe; I'm knitting lace on my grand cross-country road trip; you may be knitting your lace anywhere from the melting polar icecaps to your neighbor’s backyard BBQ. No matter how near or far you’re going, everybody knits lace in the summer, so get that knitting off the couch and show it a good time.
The Amazing Lace: Summer 2006
But this is not just your average, every-day knitalong. This is a knitalong with twists. Challenges. Events. This is knitting as sport. And it's not just an organized, civilized team sport like polo or golf. This is an extreme sport, a chance for you and your knitting to push yourselves to work together as a team when faced with external challenges. Every two weeks there will be issued a challenge in the form of a “clue” that you will need to interpret creatively on your blog. There will be voting. There will be winners. There will be prizes.
You know you want to. It's going to be great. To join, head on over to The Amazing Lace, because all the action has it's own extra special blog (although you'll hear a lot about it here, too) and sign up. You can also comment here, email me, or email amazinglace AT licketyknit DOT com. Because it's just that fun.
