A little something...

I felt like trying a bit of lace yesterday. Since I've been so busy in August, I didn't have time to work too many of my July Phat Box samples. But I grabbed a beautiful little sample skein of laceweight mulberry silk handspun from Dragonmaille and tried this pattern. I didn't have quite enough to finish the doily, so I cast off where I had to. This yarn was so beautiful. I wish I'd remembered to take a picture of the skein before I started. The spinning was even and I loved the way the single ply shimmered.
I think it's quite pretty and it looks sweet sitting under the vase that holds my spindles. It measures approximately 6 inches in diameter.
