Have I mentioned lately that I love it when knitters make me look good?

An absolutely fantastic and brilliant knitter (who also knits at the speed of light!) just finished this:

Oh my God! That is truly

Oh my God! That is truly amazing. As I'm just struggling with my first proper lace project I'm in awe of this knitter's skill and patience.

Will I ever get there! Who knows but I'm enjoying the challenge.

Mmario: That is really lovely work. You are very good. I will try to most my current projects today or tomorrow. One is the shaly made in the opposite direction from the last two and the other is a simple towel that I am making using some cotton in. Got to reduce the stock. Again, beautiful work sir.

Can't wait until that's on

Can't wait until that's on my needles. Great pattern, Mario. (Although I'm not sure I'll be true to it's name and knit it in white. I have some green that tends to the blue side that I think I might use.) But then, again, the white is awesome.

Now I understand why you

Now I understand why you have to block. I never have to block any of my stuff, so this was a suprise to me.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. So beautiful! Maybe it is cause I have not smoked a cig in almost 5 mos but I am finding this shawl so hypnotic too. It is hard to describe...but it brings pleasure just staring at it. Great job again!
