Last post, I was trying to decide where to go next with the knitting; I was at sea. Now, I've landed. I've chosen "all over lace" from Lanaknits. I'm using Katia's "papiro", a linen/cotton yarn. It's heavier than the allhemp6 called for, but my gauge is the same and so far I'm really happy with the results. And no, that's not grey, it's a heathery beige.

The pattern is everything I like--complex-looking, but easy to memorize. Quite soothing to knit after a few repeats. We'll see how it goes; it's early days...
Remember my pots on the improvised bench? Well, gorgeousness has arrived!

I spent a big chunk of yesterday covered in smudges of potting soil and splashes of water, but it was worth the effort. In a few weeks, all will be beautifully lush. The heuchera and bergenia will eventually make their way into perennial beds at the side of the house. But that's months away.


  1. That's going to be a beauty. Nice pattern choice.

  2. Glad you have landed. The lace looks great.

  3. Beautiful sweater.. I love the pattern. Your flowers are off to a great start.
