Designed as a special release for the Knit Purl Month of Lace, Barnes is inspired by a friend and former coworker - also the store manager of Knit Purl. The central design is a lace motif flanked by knit-and-purl teardrops, all surrounded by a neat garter stitch edge - for an elegant and modern lace design.
Sample shown was knit using two skeins of The Sanguine Gryphon Gaia in the color "Sea Glass" . Pattern includes both charts and written line-by-line instructions, as well as U.S. standard and metric measurements.

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of "traditional" knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
