Knitting has slowed down as the days are my recreation time turns more into sitting outside reading in the evening than knitting while watching TV. But since my last update I have two more patterns completed in my sampler.
Pattern seven has a subtle diamond shape formed by four small clusters in the middle of a diamond of eyelets. This didn’t turn out very distinct for me. The end fabric has a nice balance of openness and bulk though. I could imagine this pattern even scaling up to a fingering or sport weight yarn nicely.
Pattern eight is a very simple repeat of an open netting type lace. With just an eight row repeat and the pattern worked over a multiple of six stitches, this could be a good pick for a larger piece where you don’t want too much complexity to keep track of while you work. I’ve got some yarn I’ve been saving for a summer throw (something to keep the chill and/or bugs off sitting outside once it starts getting dark) and this could fit the bill.
