Circle of Love Lace Doily
With less than 30 rows and enough symmetry in the pattern not to be overwhelming, the 12 of Hearts lace doily is both a good introduction to lace knitting and is small enough to take as a vacation project. Resting rows provide structure, and the opportunity to assess the pattern.

Rejoice! He is risen!
This Easter Cross pattern has surface patterning encircling the center of the cross, and grounds the cross itself. A section of 1 by 1 cabled stitches, alternating on every row, represents the crown of thorns and a section of a yarn over variation creates a netting representing the Fisher of Men, edges the project. Six different stitch patterns and several different methods for decreases make up this small project; but patience is rewarded. This is a skill building project.
