Les Sylphides

On June 14th 2017, Knitpicks and Crafts Americana is publishing a new collection, called Luxurious Lace! And guess what??  One of my designs is included.  The piece as shown is a full circle, but the pattern includes directions for 1/2, 3/4 and full circle options.  This is knit in Knit Picks Luminance, which is 100% silk lace weight decadence. 

I hope to get some photos of the other options up on my Ravelry page soon, and I will add links here, but for now here are the "schematics" of the 1/2 and 3/4 versions.

So we have beads, nupps, leaves and mesh.  What more can a lace knitter want?  A copy of the new book, you say?  I will be doing a book giveaway (thank you Knitpicks!) and all you have to do it like and share my facebook post about Les Sylphides, on June 14th.  Then you will be entered in my random drawing, with a winner posted on July 4th.  I will be halfway across the globe so my Facebook post might be a few hours later in the day.  Please be patient!
