I’ve wanted to name a pattern Bite Me for a while now. Why? I don’t know. Maybe I’ve been a bit grouchy lately. But having come up with the name, I had to come up with the pattern. Finally, the right idea presented itself in the form of a soft, snow-white skein of yarn and a handful of blood red buttons.
This little piece of faux-Victoriana is a quick project; light, lacy and warm, it is sure to attract the attention of the most desirable vampires.
It’s simple. It’s sweet. It’s strange.
