Hand dyed yarn and complex patterning can play epic games of tug-and-war if you let them. Which draws your attention first? What do you focus on? I’m calling a cease fire. A strong diamond & mesh pattern creates lace work that shines, while smooth expanses of stockinette allow gorgeous yarn & colors take center stage.

“Rosmerta” is the name of the Gaulish goddess of abundance & fertility. (And the last name of everyone’s favorite Hogsmeade pub proprietress.)
