This is for the GG Places Real or Imagined KAL in August.

I had grand designs for an Yggdrasil inspired shawl, a massive cable trunk with 3 worlds nestled within, and a shimmering corona of leaves, but life often has plans of its own, and grand, elaborate, complicated designs are simply not on the cards this season.

Instead, I will humbly petition Loki to look favourably upon my efforts by using a truly cunning lace, and hope that I might be able to pull a rabbit out of a hat in time to meet the wonderful AL.

Started yesterday, which gives me 2 weeks to knit and block this ready to meet AL. :) (The tricky bit is that we are currently in the high Savoie, France, and will be camping in the van and travelling 1700 km during that time. Why oh why do I do these things to myself?

Not sure about the green CC, so trying out some golds.
Why the macaroon? I happened to be eating it at the time, and it was so nicely colour coordinated..

Wollmeise=165.7 oligo vergine
Muli 400m=99 (65%silk, 35 baby camel) colourway?
