On your bike!!!!!

Ok, so day one of the Tour de France today, and I've eventually settled on my polka dot jersey project!!! I was going to attempt lamanaria, but as this will be gifted to my mil for her 60th birthday, I thought she would get more use from a stole..... So I've picked a rectangle from Victorian Lace today.

The yarn is jaggerspun zephyr from stash, its a lovely ruby colour, just hoping I'll be ok with the proper laceweight thickness........
Sadly, I can't cast on today as I'm at work on the late shift, but I have an early half tomorrow, so I should get a few hours knitting in then. I'll have to mix my TdF knitting with my interview prep for the first week of the tour.

I've signed up for the Ravelympics too, to start in August. I love joining in a knitalong:-)

I love the colour you've chosen and I'm sure once you've got going you'll be ok with its thickness - it's not as fine as some.

That looks lovely. Lace weight is ok once you've made something in lace it makes everything else you seem so much quicker lol

Lovely colour, don't forget the lifelines -or is it just me that needs them until I get into the swing of a VLT project! I am sure mil will love it if you can bear to part with it once its finished!
