I’m a little behind the times as the first two books were published in 2004 and 2005. The books are similar to Barbara Walker’s Treasury books, but focus just on patterns that can be used to enhance or construct an edging. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful photography. Though I haven’t had time to really peruse the books, one pattern instantly grabbed my attention, Cord n Cable.
It will go perfect with my cabled stole idea once I add in a lace ladder, maybe. The buttery merino lace wool no longer seems like a good fit though just for hoots and giggles I’ll still give it a whirl on a swatch. I’ll also try out what might be a better option, the hand-spun brown wool my MIL gifted to me after receiving it from her MIL.
