Through The Gate Gently is an act of love and remembrance. I didn’t realize it when I started, but by the time I finished this gentle hazy green shawl, I knew it was my subconscious mind working away behind the scenes. The hat I’m wearing in the pictures was given me by Suzanne Middlebrooks at the 2020 Hill Country Weavers retreat in Texas. She always made me - and everyone else who knew her - feel like Austin was my home, and I never imagined that would be the last time I saw her, or how much would change in the days after.

To Suzanne, and to the many we have loved and lost: you will never be forgotten. Rest easy, my friends.

This shawl is a mashup designed using elements of the three previous 2023 Lace Lovers Club shawls.

Lace lovers 2023
This is a special club for serious lovers of lace knitting, and the patterns will all be in the general style of past lace clubs of mine. Each pattern will include a medium (for regular yarn option) and tall (for double yarn option) size. The medium size will use from 700-950 yards. The tall size will vary, but in general will use at least 1200 yards.

The club will include four total new Romi lace patterns, and this listing is for the pattern only option. Yarn used for the patterns will be lace weight to light fingering weight. At the end of the club shipment term, the fourth pattern, a mashup of different lace patterns from the previous three club designs, will come out.

2023 schedule (subject to small changes):

  1. Pattern out early April
  2. Pattern out late July
  3. Pattern out mid November
  4. Pattern out late January 2024

Single club patterns will not be available to the public until February of 2024, but the pattern only eBook option will remain available throughout the club term. eBook patterns will be downloadable both from your Ravelry library and through your Designs by Romi account (to create an account, go to and link your Ravelry account).

The patterns you receive will be brand new designs. For those of you who would like to join me, there will always be knit-alongs for the patterns in my Ravelry group. All patterns will be designed and written by me. Club purchases are non-refundable.

I’m excited to knit with you all - thank you for joining me!
