I actually managed to do this in just over a month. I ran out of the body colour and had to do boarder in a cream but I think it turned out okay.

Hi Ron, The pattern is from "A Gathering of Lace" by Meg Swanson (the book). I start with "Clea 5" but ranout at the border edging and found out that that colour had been discoed so went in search and had no luck so I finished it with #10 bedspread weight in a cream. I really like the effect so all is well that ends well lol. I cast of with the knit 2tog method but found because it was cotton there was no stretch to it so when knitting with cotton I will not use that method again. Yes I knit to much as I now have tennis elbow in both arms, I just bite the bullet and push through the pain, I truly am a knitting fanatic lol.

This looks great. It suddenly became a pattern I must do. Thanks for the inspirational work!

A very lovely design and very well knitted. I like the contrast of the two colors...great balance between the two areas.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Well I am not sure who will get it as I sell my knitting in a Museum of Hooked Rugs. If it doesn't sell then maybe it will be a Christmas gift for one of my sister-in-laws (I have six of them lol)

If that is "okay" then I am totally intimidated by the thought of what you would consider "good". Beautiful!

It is not a difficult pattern but I would maybe try a smaller item Lije a scarf just to get the hang of it.
