Looks terrific. Very impressive. Again, what needle size? How many yards?

Now that is a bit much, I dare say. Most of us aren't wearing hip boots!

Hip boots??? I don't smell anything that funky. The Acronym phrase just kind of coalesced on it's own, my fingers just typed it when it was done. In any event - great job, MMario.

Excellent job! Perfect!

This belongs in a gallery! You are so inspiring. I am getting the lace bug. Haven't really tackled it yet.

I think lace wshould be out in the world where people can enjoy it....not that I wouldn't put a piece in a gallery if I had the chance. But this is going to the boss's wife - who everyone knows is the *real* boss.

Stunning, as always! Does a project like this have to be knitted in solitude without distractions? I can't imagine the concentration is must take to create such intricacy.

Are you crazy? I would never get anything done if that were so.

the center square took more concentration then anything - I knit that on coffee breaks and lunch hours; the other two sections are a 17 stitch repeat and a 6 stitch repeat - so easily memorized, easily "read" - no problemo.

Yup, I am a bit of a nutter - I knit after all!

Now that you put it in those terms, I can relate it to the stranded knitting patterns. Breaking a pattern down to it's smallest repeat section makes it easy to do.

But, I'm still seriously impressed with your work!

my motto is simple to knit - impressive to look at; it's what I strive for.

WOW - now I'm really inspired. Is this a pattern you created yourself, or is it one that I can find somewhere?
