As we gear up for the Amazing Lace challenge, it's high time to introduce you to the (Mostly) Self-Taught Knitter Amazing Lace team.
Our first member of Team (M)S-T is Karen.
Heritage: Mostly Italian, with some Polish and English thrown in. The hot Italian temper may be a problem. However, she also inherited a huge stubborn streak from the Italian AND the Polish grandmothers, so once she sets her mind to something, she is not likely to give up.
Expectations: Low. However, she did make it through a Lopi Lace scarf and is currently having success with Embossed Leaves socks.
The next member of Team (M)S-T is Peat.
Heritage: 100% Wool Fingering. Discovered at a Fiber Fest in April. Joining the team from Thing Remembered in Slate Hill, NY.
Expectations: We see problems ahead. This member, being Fingering, is extremely anorexic. Will be hard to work with.
The last member of Team (M)S-T is Prym - a late arrival, having just shown up yesterday.
Heritage: German, although there are rampant rumors that this member actually joins us from Mexico.
Expectations: This seems to be the strongest member of the team, having already been paired with Karen in the Knitting Olympics. They won gold (as seen above . . . Karen's team photo is from her post-Olympic photo shoot).
Kiri. The team is well advised to be afraid. Be very afraid.
