It's so beautiful! When you block, did you totally wet it, before pinning it out, or just spray it, to get it damp. I have a cotton shawl that needs blocking, but I haven't decided which is the best approach - wet, then pin out, or pin out then spray?

That cannot be easier than it looks! Yikes. What intricate work. Brava Carol...just gorgeous. I'm toiling away with cables and will stop my complaining immediately. Yours takes the cake!

Beautiful Carol, I sooo wish I could knit. The colour, the delicacy, everything, you did an amazing job. Hope that you love wearing it - lots of options as you say! xx

Do you take orders??? I just love that.


Having knit a couple lace shawls (very slowly and rather badly), I'm here to tell you that it isn't easier than it looks! What a gorgeous result. I'm not a red person but that shawl is fabulous and will look great on you.

Linda Watson

That's gorgeous! Looks good front, back and sideways. You're right - until it's blocked I always feel like it just might be a dishrag. Then, voila! Lace.


Practically perfect in every way!
