Hairpin Lace Afghan



After finally learning to make hairpin lace, I decided to make a simple afghan to practice the strips. Overall, I like how it turned out, it makes a nice, light, throw. If I use it in an afghan again, though, I think that I will likely alternate it with strips of either sc's or dc's to make a more dense fabric. This ghan is going to end up donated to that fundraiser at work in place of the ripple one in an earlier post, since my mom has laid claim to the ripple.

A couple weeks ago I also "attempted to do hairpin lace". After 2 days of MANY tries -- I put it aside also. I saw a couple websites with instructions, the best one showed a video with instructions. Now I need to find instructions on what to do with the strips once they're done!!
