My First Cloth

Mark Rowsom's picture

I started this cloth in June and delivered it on Sept 25..... It fits the table, and they like it!! I'm very happy about that because you know it could well be "not quite our thing." I stole the middle part of the pattern from "Azalea" by Marianne Kinzel, and made up the rest as I went along. Now I'm going to start one of the Niebling designs.... wish me luck.

Hey thanks guys for all the nice comments... I was going to finish a sweater before starting my next lace obsession, but you've convinced me to start one of the Niebling designs when I get home from work tonight! Thanks again for the encouragement.

Don't feel too bad, Mark.

Don't feel too bad, Mark. Your sweaters are quite fantastic. Each of us has his own niche. But don't be afraid to try something new...as you reminded me once.

Seriously!!! If they didn't

Seriously!!! If they didn't like it they shouldn't be allowed to live because their souls are already dead. That is absolutley one of the most gorgeous knitted pieces I've ever seen! Not too fussy, lovely composition, rich with texture - I can't say enough good things about it. It makes me weak in the knees.
