The other day I was perusing a yarn store looking for a suitable candidate to mend a sweater for a client. While staying on task, my eye did not fail to notice a sample scarf knit up on the first display. Despite the fact that it was knit in the yummiest of cashmere yarns, what really got my attention was the stitch pattern. But I was short on time with things to do. I filed it away for further consideration later. That didn’t work. I’ve been thinking about it ever since and kicking myself for not spending more time examining the delicate lace. It’s at times like these that you head to Barbara Walker’s Treasuries. What would we do without them??
