As posted on the Amazing Lace boards, challenge #5 is as follows:
Do you ever get to the point where you’ve knit so much lace that you start seeing lace everywhere? A sunset reminds you of the colorway of your shawl; iron scrollwork on a bridge reminds you of the lace motif on your lacy socks; your eyes can immediately spot a flash of lace a mile away?
In honor of that slightly crazed I-see-lace-everywhere mental state that’s a symptom of obsessive lace knitting, your challenge is to post one photo on your blog in which your lace is a hidden or unexpected part of the picture. This could be interpreted in any number of ways. You could go a hidden-in-plain-sight route. You could camouflage your lace. You could make your lace a tiny part of a large scene, a la the original Where’s Waldo (I’m picturing a sea of white gym socks with one pair of white lace socks…but I didn’t have the energy or the props to make an example photo). You could do something completely unrelated to these suggestions — as long as it’s clever and fun and your lace appears in the picture.
This is the most abstract of all the challenges. In spite of these examples we’re not even sure what we’re expecting. So be creative — we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
So here is my entry. It’s not very good, but I am tired and the stuff I wanted to photograph just didn’t work in the execution. So this is what you get.

Oh, I love it!
I’m off to pour some morning coffee before I read more blogs….
