while visiting rebecca in gainesvelle, we checked out hanks. hanks has an excellent selection of sock yarns. my one purchase, a merino/silk blend from rocket yarn. googling i see rocket yarn also has an etsy shop.
the yarn has such a lovely hand, it cried out for lace.
i knew i wanted to use the leaf pattern, but i didn't want to just knit straight rows of leaf, then medallion, etc.
so i got the brilliant idea of interspersing individual leaf motifs into a ground of medallion motifs.
i'll try it again with a solid green yarn.
start over with all leaf lace, adding size 6 beads as accents.
don't you think?
