Summer School – Lace – Sybaritic

I’m taking a bit of time off this month, but I wanted to make sure you had something to do while I’m napping (or, more likely, sweeping out the garage, getting drywall dust  out of my cabinets, or planning next year’s projects…but napping sounds better).

On Mondays, I’ll introduce a topic or skill and provide a bunch of links and resources to help you learn more. Later in the week, I’ll show off a few favorite patterns so you can do some homework.  The featured patterns will be on sale for one day each, so come back each weekday to see if there’s something that catches your eye!

I’m just going to give in and stop fighting my love for knitted leaves.  (Remember this statement in a few months when I show you one of the obsessions I’ve been working on this month while I’m plotting future projects…) Sybaritic is lacy, it’s leafy, and it might even be the tiniest bit fiddly…and I’m not even a little bit sorry.

I mean don’t worry too much, the only fiddly bit is that you do the gusset decreases in a slightly weird place.  But once you’ve done the first pair of them, you’ll see how they work (and it’s so so so worth it for that cute little leaf on the top of your foot.

If you’ve got the hang of lace (or if you’re like me, and you’ve never been inclined to start with the easy projects thank you very much, you’ll just dive in wherever the hell you feel like it because what’s the worst that could happen), then you’re going to have a blast with these.

Sybaritic is 25% off just for today with the code SUMMER SCHOOL (technically, it’s 12:01 am to 11:59 pm eastern time on Friday, July 12, 2019 if you want to get very particular).  Come back next week for my ‘I’m too lazy to do it the right way’ approach to colorwork!
