Great job. What's the pattern? Do you have a picture of the whole thing? Is it a scarf or a shawl or....?

You lace knitters do incredible work! That is beautiful! I haven't the brain power to do a garment with that kind of detail.

I am very envious...........what a beautiful work of lace and what a priviledged (and proud) mom!

I'm working on my first lace-type shawl and must be very dedicated and highly concentrated on the work. I'm not sure it will be a direction I will be heading in very often!

Please share a photo of the entire piece with us!

How did you take such a great photo? I have a heck of a time getting photos of my lace work. Did you block this work before taking the photo? If so, how did you block it? And on what?

the camera did most of the work. i just zoomed in and focused. because the yarn was a dark color, i placed it on a light background which shows the lace patterning very well.

You're a natural Fred! That is a really wonderful piece of work. I would add my name to the list of those who would like to know the pattern and the yarn. Great colour too!!
