Lace Tunic

I don’t know how I ever lived without this tunic.  I wear it all the time, layered over anything from a white t-shirt with jeans to a dress.  And because it is linen, I can wash and dry it, and wear it for many seasons to come.... Perfect.

And  what a joy to make.  The Euroflax linen was easy enough to manage in the simple lace patterns periodically broken up with sections of stockinette.  On a size 8 needle, it was a relatively quick knit as well, made entirely on a week-long trip home to visit my Dad.

Pattern:  Jordan
Yarn:  Euroflax linen, 2.5 skeins, natural color

Sonoma County Fair

Many talented spinners had their yarns on display at the Sonoma County Fair.  I took refuge from the scorching heat, and ambled through the displays of yarns, knitting, and crochet.  Sonoma County has an abundance of fiber artists!  I am inspired to enter something next year.
