Your comments

Thank you everyone for your comments on the Queen Anne's Lace shawl. I truly enjoyed knitting the shawl and am glad that it came out so stunning. Ted wrote: " Is this the design by MMario? I've been thinking of doing it. What yarn are you using for it?" Yes it is the one by MMario. I knitted it out of 8 skeins of Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool.

Tallguy asked: "Where are you going to wear it so you can show off your skills?" It's my shawl for fiber events and summer evenings. It's perfect for places that have just a chill in the air.

Tychoish commented: "I heard you talking about this on the list and I was like "meh, a shawl, feh" because that's how I respond to all shawls. And then I was stumbling across the internet, minding my own business and *wham* amazing shawl. It's so cool. I want to make one now!" LOL! That'll teach ya! ;)

Onward

The needles and the wheels have not been idle. I started plying some laceweight merino/alpaca/silk that Susan of Abstract Fibers and a couple of hours of spinning last Wednesday came up with 100 yards of pretty yarn. I hope to finish up the rest this weekend when I go south to Salem to visit the spinning group meeting at the Mission Mill Museum and fetch some knitting I left behind at a pizzeria I visited for lunch while down in Salem on business. It wasn't the lacework edging as that's too complex and slippery. It's a pair of socks on Addi Lace needles that I've been working on that were perfect for such a jaunt. You can imagine my annoyance when I found I had dropped them, and as I wasn't the driver I couldn't go back to fetch them. I will get them back and start churning them out.

Nitey night.
