My Garden Party
by designers: Two Old Bags
Pattern purchased at SAFF in 2008!
This pattern was in a protective sleeve and placed in my shawl notebook along with my very long list of "to be knitted someday". It was when I saw a co-knitters's (Patrice) version of this design that it caught my attention again! Patrice's gift of color is fabulous and all you Rav knitters out there should check her out...what a treat!
I did follow a couple of my own rules: 1). I knit the eyelet row, the row before and after the eyelet row in yellow and 2). whatever colorway used Before starting the eyelet setup row was picked up again at the end of the eyelet rows. I think these steps allowed a little formality in the piece and eliminated the possibility of a hodge-podge result.
