“Her limbs grew numb and heavy, her soft breasts were closed with delicate bark, her hair was leaves, her arms were branches, and her head became a tree top, everything gone except her grace, her shining,” wrote Ovid, describing Daphne as she turned into a laurel tree to escape from Apollo. These lace laurel leaves give comfort and warmth without turning you into a tree.

I just re-issued Daphne in a cotton-blend yarn from Knit Picks in time for Summer knitting - it’s also on the web here.
The first two pictures here feature a sample in Swish Worsted, the other pictures feature the Alpaca Silk yarn.
Gauge details are listed for the new version, in worsted weight.
