The preparation for our Road Trip a.k.a Collar CAL is entering its first stages.

We need to select what type of thread or yarn we want to use. I will be using a bamboo yarn, it is sleek and shiny and I love to work with this yarn, it is easy on my hands too.

Next, choose your color and your needle size. You are going to need a regular hook and a jumbo size hook or ruler or broomstick for that matter, please don’t laugh this is serious.

I am posting several types of collars, but I think I like the rounded collar best, for our first try.

So you get the idea, do a google images search like I did and see which collar you really like and you will see how the finish collar should look.

I started my practice run on saturday and it is not a difficult stitch but like anything else, you need practice to keep the lace looking perfect.

So this plus this

should give us a nice looking collar. What do you think??

This is all for now fellow Artisans, and don’t forget to Stay Focused and Inspired and Organized, we will try to start very soon….






  1. Hmmm very tempting 🙂


  2. I think it will be gorgeous 🙂
    Bets of luck!


  3. The project design (collar) plus the lace is going to be beautiful! “Staying focused”/’on task’ is not something that comes easily for me!!!! (Hence the reason for a few UFOs and variety of patterns purchased for that ‘future’ project!!) LOL! Hugs…………….


  4. Bamboo yarn is lovely 🙂
