on this very last day of 2010, i have one final holiday pattern to ring out the old year while swinging in the new. and a mighty fancy one it is—sure to be on many a dance card as we knitters prepare for spring celebrations, such as weddings and proms.
what girl could resist such a tempting confection as this pair of lacy lovelies, with their millionaire’s mile of lavishly twining lace leaves?
you need just to pull them on to feel elegantly made up and that’s a whole lotta bang for the knitting buck, if you ask me.
they’re fun to knit too—they go surprisingly fast, with the anticipation of seeing yet another leaf repeat glide off the needles. it’s a project that will have you earning your own admiration—the results are so much more than the sum of their parts.

congratulations to stephanie, owner of dirty water dyeworks (formerly with dye dreams), for bringing her wonderful dye work back to the market through her new company. thank you stephanie for your enthusiastic support of my work; here’s to a happy, healthy, and prosperous new start.
many thanks and much love to my good friend helena for once again gracing this page and my design with her charm and beauty—she is a natural. and so much fun to work with, too; her smile gets me every time.
isn’t she cute??
