 I love knitting lace, I don't do as much of it as I would like to but when I can really get into a project I am so very happy. Lately I have been really enjoying patterns with the combination of a large area that has a simple repeat, and then a small area with that 'wow' factor which of course is a bit more involved. I love being able to work through the simple repeat section that has enough going on to keep me interested but not so much that I have to pause the show. And then finish it all off...

"I know these days are Heaven sent" - the Steeldrivers Gratitude, I made the choice to live with this feeling for the year. I am so grateful for this life, my family, friends, my job, you, (yes you!)

I hadn't had enough of the beads, twisted stitches and lace, I needed more but also less, something similar but smaller.     Abbey Glade took me away from the drama of the coastal shore where Ivory Spires took inspiration. This new design seemed deeper, richer, the depth of the color in the yarn was so natural.

About a year ago I was looking for a spring/summer cardigan to knit, not necessarily only for spring or summer either, I find that I wear my warm and cozy wool sweaters in my cold 100+ year old house but as soon as I leave to the grocery store, or a friends house (who has this crazy "insulation" stuff everyone is so hip on) I get way too warm. So I like lighter sweaters for the winter as well for...
