Armored

I told you there would be some lacy business coming up, and you know I’m not the type to lead you astray (temptation, yes; astray, no)!

I suppose the pattern on this one may be a tiny bit too small scale to truly scratch the lace itch, but the result totally feels lacy to me.  Elle, sample knitter extraordinaire, said it reminds her of chain mail, which I totally get.  I sort of love the idea of a little wisp of knitting (and this is a silk/yak blend by Bijou Basin…wispy is exactly the word for it) as armor against the world.  I’m pretty sure that’s one of knitting’s superpowers!
