Between the Tides
When I was young, my family lived for several years just a short walk away from the beach. During the “off season” when less people were there, or on overcast and stormy days, we would walk down to the beach with our dog and spend hours playing ball with her and exploring the little tide pools that formed between the high and low tide lines.
The combination of color, texture and lace in this piece reminds me of those little pools of water, filled with sea life and plants, we played near during those days.
I love knitting (and wearing) infinity loops and knitting them Moebious-style is just so amusing! Starting from Cat Bordhi’s Moebious cast on and ending with an I-cord edge, this loop features a slightly embossed, lacy leaf motif as found in Herbert Niebling’s Quadratisches Deckchen.
This pattern includes charts and fully written line by line instructions for both the lace and an alternate edge if you have just a few grams more of yarn.
