Little notes on lace...
Lieveke thought it was time I knit something for her instead of the baby.
Lieveke needs a very practical warm garment but hey we're breezy unpractical types.
I was bored with straight garter/stockinette/seed, you name it.
This wonderful pattern is acceptably not too easy, not too difficult.
And so I'm adapting it into a tunic for Lieveke.
Kidsilk, in a perfect taupe-heather-lavender hue.
-and I'm very happy so far!
Requires concentration (counting, focus, endurance).
But you get a break on the wrong side everytime : all purl there.
And it's really not so slow.
After a while the pattern speaks to you/for you.
-and the concentrated knitting becomes a natural (high) joy.
And oh! this blog.
Have a really nice week, the moon is new tonight.
