Summer Lace

Sometimes there is nothing beats knitting a bit of lace.

Especially when you have a new jacket for the British Summer, dark denim, which I still see as slightly industrial but an invaluable item.

I have knit a few lace items which sit in a superior carrier bag, not your average supermarket plastic I’ll have you know(helps my conscience!), that never see the light of day. Mainly because these are wraps or shawls which at 5′ 3″ they drown me and generally get in the way. I am strange.

So for this jacket I remembered this stash and realistically decided on a scarf,  one that is likely to see light of day.

 Pattern: Three Sisters Scarves #2  (Ravelry link). It is slightly different to the original, no garter ridges in between the pattern repeats.

Yarn: Skein QueenMulberry(sadly discontinued but I have another skein) – 30 % Silk, 70 % Merino 375 yards. There is a smidgen left.

Shade: Rockpool

Dimensions: 7″ x 73″ my usual hard blocking!

A very quick and effective knit.

Back to the socks.
