the Port Zélande inspired wavy lace tunic top
Last summer we went on holiday to the holiday resort Port Zélande in the Netherlands... it had this small harbour I fell in love with and inspired me to make this lace pattern. I found the yarn in a discount basket and each ball of yarn was priced €0,50 (luckily I found eight which were from the same dyeing lot though I only used 5)

It's such incredibly soft baby knitting yarn...

If you have any remarks or questions please tell me.
