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!
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.
