Which do you prefer? I'd love to hear your opinions.
Exhibit A: horseshoes lace (from my Reader's Digest book of needlework (thanks, H!))
or Exhibit B: gothic leaf pattern (from B. Walker's Second Treasury)
They're both knit in the Be Sweet Bamboo I got in London. My idea is to make a lacy summer shell from it (for when I move to a country that has a summer, obviously), so it will be an all over lace pattern. I can't decide whether I like the curves of the horseshoes lace or the strong diagonal elements of the gothic leaf.
