Lace, lace, glorious lace!
This week's designer is absolutely great with lace; maybe because it runs in her family.

With a grandfather who can work the lace knitting like nobody's business, MarieAdeline has a selection of patterns to make your fingers itch for those knitting needles!

Pictured here is Yasmine, one of my favourites by this designer. I'm not sure I really have to say much here: look at how lovely it is, wrapped around and layered perfectly.

Cassandra and Alice are a great pair of shawls (offered for free!) that play off the same stitch pattern. I love the designer's thought process on this one:
"Sometimes I’m surprised to see how two sisters can be so different from each other. I was wondering someday, how two sisters can interpret in their own way a same stitch pattern to create their own shawl.
From this idea two little shawls were created, based on a lovely leaf pattern."

Cute, eh?

Finally, lest you think she knitteth only shawls, there's the very pretty Sweet Little Nothing. A lace and cable beret, this fingering-weight hat doesn't shout texture, its sings it. Wonderfully! I love a good light-weight knit, and this one looks like it's a perfect wee knit for the months to come.
