Ok, today I really have a picture!

I know, I know. I had nothing to show you last post. Just some ripped yarn, you've seen it all before!

Here I am today...a little progress on Miss Lambert's Shetland Shawl from Victorian Lace Today.



I LOVE this yarn Sundara sent. Absolutely a dream. I don't think I have ever worked with a yarn so thin, well maybe for socks...this could drive me crazy. I like quick progress...you know a week or so for a project...well, look for the FO on this one around the spring!

I hope it will be sooner than that. The pattern is simple...and it will be done this month...as long as I don't tire of it;)

It's already pretty, so I'm sure the finished and blocked version will be a knock-out! What kind of fiber(s)?

Beautiful! I love the yarn and the pattern, and they are absolutely mouth-watering together!

I love the red color. Is that Sundara's Silk Lace yarn or her DK Silky Merino? - or her sock-weight yarn?

Is the one skein enough for the pattern? I really want to use the yarn Sundara sent me for a pattern out of VLT, but I wasn't sure I'd have enough (and I'm not sure I can get another skein). Your lace is gorgeous.

Oh, how timely to have stumbled across your blog!

I couldn't sleep this morning and was up at 4am with coffee, browsing Victorian Lace Today!

I'm really trying to not cast on yet, i've a few projects already on needles and so many in the que.

Sigh. You're really not making this easy, ya know!

Your work is gorgeous. I'll stay tuned!
