hilltopshibui 014scrRhapsody in Lace and Ruffles by Megan Wright
from Hilltop Yarn in Seattle.
ShibuiKnits Baby Alpaca DK in color Spruce
from Knit Purl in Portland, OR.

This yarn is beautiful, it comes in rich colors, slightly variegated, soft and smooth, delightful to knit.
This yarn is a lighter gauge than the yarns specified in the pattern, so I modified the lace panel to make the wavy part wider, adding two stitches and two rows. I also added rows and details to the top and bottom borders.

That ruffle wanted to curl sooooo bad. I wondered how I was going to block a ruffle, thought about it the whole time I was knitting those 14 curly 581-stitch rows of stockinette. Here’s what I came up with:
