Broomstick Lace – Never heard of it…..

I have dabbled in knitting (scarves and one rather ill-fitting beanie), used a sewing machine for the first time on Tuesday night and never tried my hand at crocheting – but I must admit I am inspired to give Broomstick Lace a try. I came across these images whilst blog surfing.

(If you have a moment check out Michelle @ twoandsix’s blog – the photographs are amazing – makes me want to knit again)

I think these cuffs are great – I’ll take one in each colour please!
And of course – if you are not inclined to get out your hooks and wool – you can always purchase ready-made broomstick lace goodies like this on etsy:

For those who want to give it a try – there are a number of short instruction video’s on you-tube. If you are brave enough - send me some photos!
