A few weeks ago Renee said, "Oh! Look at all the tulips." when looking at the Lotus Blossom Tank's Lace. I thought this was quite lovely.
The following week Deepa couldn't stop seeing alien faces. Now all I see are alien heads swimming on waves. Thanks, my friend. Aliens. You know how I love em'.... (ahem. not a fan) Although, sock monkey lace would certainly take the prize.
Sock Monkeys scare me. As do clowns. I'm not afraid to admit it, either. If you ask why, I'll have to go on an enormous rant about my (recently deceased) evil Step-grandmother, and I can assure you that you don't want to hear it!
Ms. Walker calls the pattern 'Lotus Lace' in either her first or second treasury. Earlier I noticed that Deb thought the pattern looked like thistles. Then she found a little proof through Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume One, Knit and Purl.
Perhaps it's really just like clouds. Dear readers, what do you see?
LBT Progress report: the front is done, and I'm past the armhole shaping on the back. I should finish the tank in just a few days' time. I'm still loving the yarn. The pattern is pretty fabulous as is. I'm excited to try Japanese Short Rows to shape the straps/upper back. I've made a few modifications here and there-- but I'd recommend it. It's a great tank.
