Iris – fern lace loop scarf

Iris came about when I wanted a simple scarf to loop twice cozily around my neck in one of my favorite colors.  To add interest, I decided to embellish the scarf with a lace border in off-white. In the end, I liked the fern lace border so much that I extended it to the remainder of the scarf but in a simpler variation. Though a tad more elaborate than originally planned, the final rendition proved to be more interesting to knit. Above all, it is as beautiful as it is fun to wear.

Irene – floral lace yoke cardigan

Loving the floral lace of Cynthia and Jennifer, I have carried the floral theme into Irene. To complement the beautiful floral lace yoke, a simpler lacy stripe pattern was designed for the rest of the cardigan. Irene by far might be my most favorite pattern as I am planning to make another one with summer yarn. It’ll probably be fun to wear it to the Tulip Festival this spring to see the lovely blooms.
