Notes

Playing with another irresistible Gobsmacked. Some shape refining to do. Which I wish I’d discovered that bit earlier.

The photo with the leaf shows the inspiration for the idea. The cable line is meant to be the spine that runs down the centre of the leaf. The leaf lace at the end (which is repeatable and coudn be started much earlier or later, or omitted..) is the leaves en masse, as seen from a distance. Macro and micro..

Maybe this should be called Leafwood..

The red CC is the same throughout - I love how the gradient changes the apparent colour from warm to cool.

Starting lace at:
63g Gobsmacked / 59g Rose

End 1st lace rep:
43.5 Gobsmacked / 53 Rose

End 2nd rep
22.8 Gobsmacked / 48 Rose
