Summer Of Lace
delicate patterns for the slow rhythm of summertime

This summer, let lace entrance you, as delicate patterns reveal themselves through the slow and rhythmic pace of knitting. Watch the world buzz, rumble and scoot past your porch swing as row by row the pattern reveals itself.

Lace projects are lightweight, easy to pop in your handbag and well suited to the leisurely mood I aim to enjoy in the summertime. Work a couple more rows as you savour a cool drink on a shady patio with friends. Or pack a lightweight project into your hiking backpack when you head out into the wilderness.
