Have finally finished the first Wisp, in 4ply Posh Yarn in the most wonderful colours I've ever worked. It's in the blocking stage but I just had to share. The flash has bleached out some of the glorious glowing ochre and burgundy.
I have some lovely oval wooden buttons that will transform this into a versatile garment; it's a lacy wrap, a wimple, or a hooded scarf.
The close-up shows the detail of the fish-net lace pattern. This is such an easy, fast knit. All garter stitch and a few rows of YO and K2TOG. 15 rows of easily memorised pattern is repeated 17 times. I added two more repeats because I couldn't bear to cast off.
I have a blue one in Posh two-ply on the needles and I'm still working on the red one which is proving tricky. I think it may be because it's in 2ply that's prone to slip off the needles. I've frogged it 3 times. Perseverance is my middle name.
