Lazy Daisy Socks
Lorraine’s favourite landscape would always be floral. In her Lazy Daisy socks, she includes rows of cables and flowers. The cables are to represent the pathways between the flowers in a flower bed. For the first time in designing socks, she cabled without a cable needle, embroidered symbols, and used duplicate stitch for the words. Designed by Lorraine Thompson 905.885.0347

Thank You Cowl
Knit a cowl to say “Thank you” to someone who has made your life better during the Covid experience. You can knit the entire cowl in the Farrow Rib stitch or personalize your expression of gratitude with a discreet motif adapted from traditional gansey and Danish nightshirt patterns. Give a gold star to recognize a good deed well done, as in the sample or choose one of the other charted motifs: a heart for love, an anchor to represent stability, a tree of life to symbolize the interconnectedness of all beings. Easy-care Adore from Universal Yarn is a round, bouncy, wool/acrylic blend with great stitch definition—the perfect choice for a design that relies on the textural difference between knit and purl stitches. Instructions include three sizes. Designed by Nancy Lekx [email protected]

When it’s finished, the two sleeve seams are sewn up leaving a large hole at the center. The second part is knit by picking up stitches around the center opening. It creates the collar and body of the cardigan using a combination of short rows (knit flat), and knitting in the round to build its shape. A little bit of striping, a button hole, and an icord bind off finish the sweater. Fiona Stevenson likeafox.ca Instagram: @fiona.knits Ravelry: Fiona Stevenson Designs

The horseshow lace motifs are reminiscent of gothic arches, and the columns between the arches evoke the flying buttresses that are quintessential traits of gothic architecture.
