Spring lace

Lace is a spring thing. Everywhere you look outside there are little bits of lace. Lacy films of fresh green leaves, little lace puffs of blossom, a delicate fretwork of twigs against the sky, and conversely a tracery of shadows cast by the sun on the grass.

And there's lace in my knitting.

Who says you have to stop wearing pure wool when the weather starts getting warmer? You just wear the thin stuff and you wear it with short sleeves.

Pattern: Seamless hybrid by Elizabeth Zimmermann from Knitting without Tears
Needles: 4mm and 3.5mm circs
Yarn: Manx Loghtan laceweight from Garthenor Organic Pure Wool
Ravelled: here

I'm really pleased with this. It fits beautifully and looks great over a vest. In fact I'm so pleased I've just started on a second one.

You are so speedy. It is lovely - the wool works so well in the lace patten.

You're cruising through the tops and sweaters this year, I'm jealous of your productivity. (but then I can't knit on my bike commute...)

Another gorgeous top! You are the knitting machine - it looks great on you.

That is absolutely gorgeous. I have been enjoying your EZ hybrid sweater 'jag' so much... it's really inspiring how you've taken that pattern into so many garments of joy!

This is such a lovely use of the Garthenor and it looks beautiful on you.
