Ice, Ice, Baby.

Now that I have that song sufficiently stuck in your head, I'll wip it out for you (because seriously, you didn't think I'd actually whip out a wip on the traditional Wednesday did you?).

Half asleep in piggie pajamas.

This is the newly popular Ice Queen. It's a fun little knit, easy lace pattern, and knit in the round. What more could you want?

But I don't see myself wearing it. I think Zknitter said it best, I can wear lace, but feeling comfortable in it is completely different.

As you can see, I didn't do the provisional cast on.

To be honest, I didn't like the picot hem down there (or even at the top). It looked ragged and uneven in laceweight yarn to me.

The plain old cast on rolls a bit, but ah well, IF this ever gets worn, the bottom will be hidden by a coat.

I'm still mulling over whether I'll do the picot bind off at the top or not.

It's providing a nice diversion from the boring baby bunny towel I should be knitting.

It looks really pretty so far.

With it over your face like that, you look like a secret agent Jedi undercover in piggie pajamas.

Ok, so either my imagination is a bit much or I haven't had my coffee yet.

Thanks for the song. I'll return the favor and say....
Did you ever know that you're my hero,and everything I would like to be? I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Have fun singing that for the rest of the day. ;)

The ice queen looks really nice - I still haven't really done much lace, but lace in the round does sound tempting.

Love the color. The little beads just reflect the light and look like little ice crystals. Very snow queen-ish. And I have a better one

It looks pretty anyway. and if you don't like it, you can alwayas put it in the "gift" pile for emergency gift-giving!

I like that yarn. It looks so soft. When I was being given instruction on spinning my rabbit's fur, I was told that straight Angora rabbit fur would be a "lace" weight yarn. I envisioned something like what you have there ... only I'm thinking once I get it all done, I'd probably dye it using beets. So it would be pink or fuchsia ... or something in that color range :).

Are we doing songs? If you're happy and you know it ....

The Ice Queen is very pretty! That's one bandwagon I can't jump on becuase it just would look silly wearing one in San Jose!

That's a great color on you! I find it funny that you're knitting something you don't intend to wear while not knitting something you "should" be. Love youe pjs too!

I agree with cpurl...I would look silly wearing it here in the bay area. But the color for you is fantastic! Glad you are enjoying the lace too!

Well, if you're ever in the mood to rob a bank, you'll have a pretty pretty ice queen to use as a mask! ;)
