A short post on this Monday morning to offer some visual inspiration at the beginning of your week.

It's been more than 2 years since the release of Girasole and it's been one of my favorite projects to watch during that time. There have been so many beautiful versions that I've seen in my travels and on Ravelry in so many different yarn weights, colors and fiber blends – what a completely special experience that has been.

So revisiting this pattern recently at BT Headquarters has been deeply satisfying. This version was knit with 12 skeins of Shelter in our Hayloft colorway. I love how the piece turned out. Same size as the original, but lighter-weight and with a slightly lacier quality.

I shot the new version in snowy Harrisville on my last trip up there. Such a wonderful location for a photoshoot.

Here's wishing you a great start to your week!

  • Gorgeous! I already have the pattern printed, yarn purchased in a very similar color (but a washable yarn — 2 and 5 year olds in the house!) now I just need the time!

  • This was my first lace project and I have made 3 of them so far.
    I love the pattern.
    This pattern has made me a fan of all your “works of Art.”
    Thanks for making all your patterns do-able.
