Such a pretty pattern. I haven't tried it yet but so looking forward to making it now it's cooler.
Just started this pattern using Emerging Hues twisted tweed sport as the colors spoke to me (purples, of course). Enjoying the knit as I can watch some programs while knitting.
Absolutely beautiful pattern, got this and a few other of your patterns to give me something nice for myself to do in our UK winter!
This Lacewing is such a lovely wearable. I like that it doesn't slip off like so many shawls do. It is creative and beautiful.
This is simple pattern with a great yarn suggestion. I am currently knitting it in the recommended yarn , Mirage Sport in different colors and it is coming out nicely. The yarn is very soft with a beautiful loft for a light weight. I can’t wait to finish and block this for the fall here in Texas.
I am making this pattern with the recommended yarn and it is turning out great. I can’t wait to finish it and block it. I am using lifelines as I knit since I am bad at dropping yo. This Mirage Sport yarn is a lovely soft yarn that is really nice to knit with. This is going to be a great garment when finished.
