wow that's awesome! just out of curiosity how long did that take you?

Kenny's picture

Thank you so much....... it took me about 4 months.

QueerJoe's picture the big holes. I'm always afraid when I see a pattern that uses them that they'll look sloppy when I make them. Yours look spectacular.

I love your blocking method..."the BDSM of knitting." Wish I could have attended that workshop. It looks great (as if you'd turn out anything but amazing).

Kenny's picture

Ok, you would have to remind me, but were you at this year's men's spring knitting retreat?

QueerJoe's picture

Will wasn't at 2010 retreat, although it looks highly likely he'll be at the 2011 event. He must have just been a voyeur regarding the workshop listing.

Kenny's picture

Oh, and thank you for the nice comments.

This is beautiful Kenny! I hope you still have your sanity after completing this work of art. This is not for the beginner.

Kenny's picture

Seriously John, it only looks complicating because of the yarn and the huge holes. But the pattern itself, is the EASIEST lace I've knitted. It even says in the pattern that it's a good choice for beginners. Give it a go.

Totally stunning work. But I'm confused. Is it a pull over shawl, poncho kind of thing?

Kenny's picture

Absolutely right. A lace poncho. Weird, but still cool to knit. :)

OMIGOSH! Kenny, that is absolutely spectacular! And the blocking technique makes it even more so!

Kenny's picture

Thank you so much!!

I'm late to the compliments - everyone used up the best superlatives already.

Kenny - all I can say is that piece turns me green with envy. I don't have the patience to block properly - and that design requires it.

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation
