The lamp once out
cool stars enter
the window frame.

A slow walk through a spring wood, smell of earthy goodness, dappled light recharges. Be still, be calm. Quietly knitting a pattern, watching the self striping yarn create undulations in the lace. This is all about contemplation and reflection.
I love seeing how each skein is so individual: the way the indigo has bled, the variations in the deep indigo. Each shows an echo of its journey in colour.
The simple lace pattern, knitted in the round, creates stripes without having to do any work for it. Block it how you'd like. It's the perfect accessory for spring weather.
Knitted on 3mm needles using just yarn overs, and decreases, this is a perfect introduction to lace knitting.
