It all started with some beautiful lace yarn (isn't that always the story). The beautiful yarn was Divine Lace from Grinning Gargoyle. Divine is a 50/50 Silk/Merino with 750 yards, 100 grams. The 750 yards was more than I needed for a scarf and not enough for a shawl or wrap.
So I decided on an Infinity Cowl with a mesh lace feel. I love the mesh trend and have had alot of fun with it this Spring.
The infinity cowl in lace is very light and airy and the perfect accessory to wear year round. I do love how delicate the lace weight yarn is in this mesh lace style. Here it is as a WIP.
It can easily be wrapped twice for a long trendy look.
I liked working on this project so much, that it got me to thinking (always dangerous). I bet it would look good in a hand dyed fingering weight yarn. I just happened to have (of course) some Miss Babs Shiruku which would be perfect for a scarf. Shiruku is a fingering weight of 70% Fine Superwash Merino & 30% Cultivated Silk..... so lovely.
And even better, finished and blocked. The color is called Heirloom and it reminds me of the tomato's at the Farmers Market. Yum!
Then it happened again .......
I love my wraps...... and what could be better than a mesh lace wrap. Not that I needed any encouragement, but I happened to have some Handmaiden Mini Maiden that I had wound for another project last year, but in the end had changed my mind ....... I have been dying to knit with it and it seemed that there was no reason that it wouldn't make the perfect mesh lace wrap.
Then there were three....
I will make all three patterns available as one pattern on Ravelry.com in both lace and fingering weight yarn. I will work on the pdf and hopefully get it published this weekend.
