It may seem odd to non-lace-loving-knitters, but after a stressful couple of weeks - I was looking for the perfect lace shawl to help me relax an un-wind. (Yes, I am fully aware that Mom is laughing her ass off right now, remembering the girl who said she'd never knit lace).
But - it's true - I find lace relaxing... well most lace - it's got to have a nice rhythmic pattern that just flows.. which I why I'm so often knitting lace leaves.
Anyway, a while back, Mom and I got a new yarn from our supplier to try out - a fingering camel/silk blend - and I've been searching for the perfect pattern for it. (If we release it, it will be Desert Cat)
I should have known, I didn't need to look any further than one of my favourite lace knitters/designers/dyers... Denise over at Lost City Knits. She recently released her Lafitte shawl (it's FREE - can you believe that?!?) and I knew I'd found my pattern.
So far, this pattern is the perfect remedy to my recent mood.... of course... that may change when I get to the nupps.... but for now, I'm basking in beaded, lacey bliss.
