Another New Scarf
This is Barbara Walker's Twin Leaf Lace, from the first treasury, worked up in a lilac sock yarn with a seed-stitch border. It won't be a button scarf, since it will most likely be a gift for someone with arthritic hands. Pretty pattern, eh? I love the three-dimensionality of it.
SF/fantasy writer. English professor. Episcopalian. Licensed lay preacher. Hospital volunteer offering spiritual care in the ER. Spinner, weaver, knitter.
And a few other things, less easily labeled. The title of this blog is a phrase John Clute used to describe the plots of my first two novels. It both amused and annoyed me, and I finally decided to reclaim it as a badge of honor. Would you prefer rickety contrivances of doing bad?
