Mrs. Ramsay's Stockings--New and Improved

I've added a new version of the Lighthouse Socks, this time called Mrs. Ramsay's Stockings, to Ravelry as a free download.  This version uses sock yarn, Three Irish Girls' Adorn Sock, for a more conventional sock.  I hope you enjoy my knitter's tribute to Virginia Woolf's character, Mrs. Ramsay, and the presiding spirit of my blog.   Mrs. Ramsay's Stockings

Lace Sampler Washcloth

For the Greater Birmingham Fiber Guild meeting this month, we're hosting a Lace Forum, where lace knitters will show off their projects and share their favorite tips for success.  A similar forum several years ago helped many of us gain confidence in lace, and this time we hope to continue the tradition.  For knitters who haven't yet tried lace, I'm offering a simple pattern featuring a lovely lace pattern called English Lace Mesh.  This little pattern is only four rows long, and shows such a clear profile that it's easy to tell what to do next.
