This is my favorite photo of all the ones I've taken.

Needles: US 5 / 3.75 mm Addi Lace. Cast off with US 7 / 4.50 mm tip
Beads: 1 20-gram packet of glass sead beads 8/0 (opaque rainbow)
Time served: A shocking six days.
Mods: Yarn held double. Knit extra repeats of the Budding Lace chart.
Knit for: Carrie. In honor of her leaving comment # 14,000.
Other favorite shawl photo. I mean we've all seen Swallowtails. We know what they look like. I think that's why I like the odd angles.
Carrie left comment #14k and I gave her a choice of socks or lace. She picked lace and 350 comments later, I finally got the thing to her. I really do suck.
A friend suggested that for comment 15k, I should be sent something by the person who leaves said comment. I like that idea, but somehow don't really see it happening. Ya know?
Anyway, it was nice to knit for Carrie again even if I have lost my mojo and it took me forever to get it done.
And for CarrieK, a photo of the shawl nailed to a fence.
Yes, it's a new layout.
TypePad has a few new ones and I decided I wanted to try to be cool like Joan and get a new layout.
I'm still sad and lame, but I've got a new layout, so I'm good.
Yes, there's a new subtitle.
Y'all can thank/blame Manise for that one.
