Inspired by the enchanting Wisteria Tunnel at the Kawachi Fuji Garden in Japan, this ethereal lace shawl is brimming with beautiful cascading blossoms.

Another Patricia

Yay, spring is finally here! And I just finished knitting another Patricia shrug, this time for me, with the knit border in the beautiful deep red Illimani Santi. I like shrugs, they are so chic and easy to wear, and are perfect for the cool spring weather. The Patricia shrug has all the elements I love: leaf lace, bobbles, eyelets and texture ribbing. I especially love the pretty leaf pattern on the sleeves. What do you think?

Another Jordan

Just finished making the Jordan sleeveless pineapple top with Euroflax Sport in Lavender. I’m always amazed by how fast this top comes together. The Allegoro yarn used for the pattern has been discontinued for a while now, I’m happy to have found a delightful substitute for it.

Wear the Jordan top for the cold weather too, why not? 😀
