  • And Now, The Rose Trellis

    To see the world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wildflower
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.
    -William Blake

    Do you see how it is exactly the same color as these flowers? Exactly. That was as close as I could get off the balcony.

    Rose Trellis Stole
    Pattern: Rose Trellis Stole from Vogue on the Go: Scarves
    Yarn: random laceweight that I bought on a really big cone a while ago and still have tons left after this, my second shawl from the yarn. 100% wool.
    Needles: US 4 Addi Natura 16" circulars. I used circulars because I was traveling through lots of airports. The pattern called for US 8s, but I listened to Eunny and went smaller.
    Notes: The pattern called for knitting the border separately and grafting it on, side to edge, but I knit it on, knitting an edge stitch with my border every other row. I ended up with 12 sawteeth instead of the 8 they called for, but it seems fine to me.
    Best Thing About This Project: Spring.

    Just lovely. And knitting the border on was definitely the way to go.

    All the spring flowers are erupting from the earth, and so lace is erupting from knitters' needles everywhere! Beautiful piece. Great color.

    Are you going to have to stand next to those flowers all the time? (just kidding)

    Coordinating your knitting with your landscaping -- bonus points! If I were to do that I would have to knit something brown and matted with occasional green patches, just like my lawn.

    But enough about my lack of green thumb -- your stole is gorgeous (and very nicely photographed!).
