Lace is Space

I took this shot of iron lace in Rathdowne St Carlton recently: . . . and the tree.I'm noticing how in both cases the effect depends on light passing through the spaces: natural or man-made.

I've been spinning some lovely fine worsted yarns lately. Worsted yarns are smooth and tightly spun--perfect for lace knitting. And of course, I've been spinning lots of different greens. So I'm challenging myself to think about knitting some tree-lace. I'm not quite sure how that will work, but that's the excitement of the challenge--I'll have a go at finding out.
