Missing My Garden

The hyacinth stitch took my breath away the first time that I saw it. Only a black and white photo of a swatch, it still held such beauty. I found it in an old stitch compendium.

At first I thought the stitch had an impact on me because I was yearning for my spring garden.

But, no, it's the elegant movement of the yarn strands, and the dimensional effect that captured me. "Dreaming of Spring" is not a scarf for beginning stitchers. If you tackle this lacework now, however, you'll have an exquisite accessory by the time the flowers are budding.
