One of the Ravelry knitters who is testing knitting my yarn is currently working on a lace sweater using Elliebelly Chemise, the sport weight linen and silk blend. I used this yarn to knit my Mithril Sweater earlier this year.
But Gail is using the yarn in a very different pattern than the one I chose, defined by columns of lace, called The Secret Life of Trees. It's exciting to see the yarn used successfully for such a different purpose.
This fragment gives you some idea of how the lace patterning looks.
And here's a full sleeve. Even unblocked, you can see the lace pattern and tell that the linen yarn is perfect here.
Gail is one of those fabulously experienced knitters who seems to be able to pull off complicated patterns with the same ease with which I would knit a garter stitch scarf. You should take a look at her projects on Ravelry (in the link to her name). In particular, her lace shawls are incredibly beautiful.
I often buy yarn because it looks beautiful in the skein. Thanks to knitters like Gail, I'm getting a much better sense of how those beautiful skeins knit up and what they most want to become. There is definitely a lacey project in Chemise coming in my future!
