Under the Mimosa Tree

gl_left_sleeve We have just enough green grass under our mimosa tree to spread out the left sleeve of gilet lace for a photograph. As usual, the rest of the grass is suffering through the summer waiting for rain.

This weekend I dropped by Full Circle to check out their current stock. I’m always amazed at the diverse range of yarns that this small traditional yarn store carries. While it’s not a trendy place, it’s certainly worth a trip if you’re looking for brands that you don’t see in other stores around Seattle. They even offer a couple of Phildar lines.

While examining each section of yarn in the shop, I came across Bomull by Marks & Kattens. It’s the long lost identical twin of Bergereine. This yarn would make a great substitute for Bergereine, especially since it comes in a slightly larger array of rich colors.

  1. Hey!!! I was at Full Circle! I fell in love and bought Misti Alpaca laceweight for the Flower Basket Shawl from the latest IK.

  2. That pattern looks like a good challenge. I have my eye on a few shawls in “A Gathering of Lace”.
    As my grandmother says, “there’s always another pattern.”
    Have fun.
