Ready for something sheer and weightless to knit as the warm weather approaches? This pretty lace scarf is all whispers and light—hardly a thing to it, but the sum of it’s delicate parts makes a stunning effect. The intricate mass of campanula flower shapes belies the simplicity of the pattern. Easy to knit and take along, it’s a project to tuck into a purse or pocket when you’re on the go.
Shown here in Great Northern Yarns Cashmere Lace Yarn, colorway Cherry Blossom—the perfect pink, fresh and sophisticated.
Just look how pretty my friend Beckie is—she doesn’t need a pink scarf to be fabulous, but she can work it!
On Saturday, we took a trip to Lily of the Valley Herb Farm for a photo shoot with our buddy Kian in Tow . . .
who was delighted to find a new friend right away.
He says, “I like the bunny, but meemaw is prettier!”
(I have to agree!)
In between raindrops, we explored the gardens and ponds. A beautiful, kid-friendly setting with masses of herb gardens in flower, in addition to the greenhouse and shop.
We made some plant purchases (Beckie bought thornless blackberry bushes) and browsed the herbal soaps and tonics while the rain poured down outside.
Kian found some dead bugs for me to photograph. Which I was happy to do (he was being really, really good). They were a bit dusty but none the worse for wear . . .
After that, we headed home for lunch and naps (yes, me too; I slept for hours!)
My friend Beckie is such a great sport and a wonderful model, too. Thank you Beckie for taking the time to help me out this weekend with these gorgeous photos.
Finally, many thanks to Lily of the Valley Herb Farm for allowing us to use their lovely setting as a backdrop for the photography (the scarf says it wants to live there when it grows up).
