Beyond the Holes of Lace (PDF article)
In its elemental form, lace is just holes arranged in a pleasing pattern. I think that what makes lace design so intriguing beyond just the holes is the texture that complements the lace. The slant of the compensating decreases, and other twists and turns of the stitches in the fabric create an extra dimension of interest. (The picture shown is from Kitty In Your Lap Towel.)

Americana Placemat
Americana Placemat
Knit a bit of fictional history with this 39-star placemat size version of a red, white and blue flag. The lacy feather and fan stripes symbolize the flag waving in the breeze. The 5-pointed stars are created with a nifty combination of knit stitch and simple embroidery.

Note: This Americana pattern is not an actual U.S. flag, nor makes any claims to be. Out of reverence, of course you would want to protect and care for it as you would any of the precious items you knit.
