Spring is here! Melanie sent in this Ice Drop to celebrate:

Ice Drop by Diane Cademartori

She worked this in size 40 Spring Flower Lizbeth. Incidentally, the rings were a bit difficult to manage due to the large count DS. Perhaps a different size thread next time!

See you in class!

Nina Libin says we can wear our hearts on our sleeves! She is sharing this older pattern, recently revised. It was designed for Kay Foster’s “Get Better” card after she had a terrible accident. Kay is doing fine now.

Hearts for Kay by Nine Libin

Heart for Kay by Nina Libin

Nina’s pattern has become very popular because it covers several different techniques such as rings, chains, floating rings, gauged (measured) picots. And the four types of joins used are most important.
