Loperwood

The travelling floral lace edging of this shawl, surrounding the smooth inner heart reminds me of the cricket pitch at Loperwood where my family used to play.

A mindless knit for the main body with a knitted-on lace edging to add interest, works with any sock yarn (solid, semi-solid, variegated) and is an ideal one-skein project.

Hamster Jam

The name of the lace pattern used for the knitted-on edging of this light and delicate shawlette is “buttercup” but I think they look more like tulips, so welcome to Hamster Jam.

A crescent-shaped shawlette worked in fingering weight/sock yarn with no short rows used in the shaping.

Ideal for balmy summer evenings.
