Just beautiful. Don’t you just love lace? It never ceases to amaze me that a blob turns into a beautiful shawl. you knit so quickly!

*giggles* It’s almost time-lapse shawl photography! It grew up before our very eyes! 🙂

Wow, the shawl is just gorgeous! Such a pretty blue!
I love the organ, too. 🙂

I finally got your Wrapped…book, and I’m enjoying it so much. Can’t wait for the next one.

Man, I wish I could get mine done that fast! I’m on the last repeat of that same Michelle shawl, and it’s been slow going. Of course, there have been several socks in between, but still – less than a week – impressive!

Wow! Well, the lace projects in this house are obviously slackers & will be getting a firm talking-to. I didn’t know lace could go that quickly! It’s lovely!

Wow. I knew Fredfoot was languishing, as I have several projects going right now, but now, I REALLY am motivated to make some obvious progress. That’s just beautiful. I love the color.

Oohhhh It is so lovely :-}
As a newly addicted lace knitter, I think the transformation is what most fascinates me.. that and the feel of soft cobwebs sliding through my fingers.

This is something I’ve been very curious about. How a shawl looks from beginning to end. Thanks for these!

I have a mitten on the needles now. Frog it. S’ok. I’m learning a lot.
