The Needles are Here


It's very nerve racking waiting for a package by the post or ups...all you need is one bad experience with either and it puts you on edge for getting started with your project...As you can see this is a beautiful shawl and when I first spied it , it knocked my socks off :o)....but in working with it on a first row of the 7 Nupps (knots) it gave me a fit...hence the "Addi Lace Needles" they better be better than my set of Knit Picks..or it's a waste....Every one of those beautiful little knots you see are 7 (K1, YO, 3X,K1...then on the next row combine them all back into one stitch. ugh!...I hope I don't have to ditch this project because of the hardship of doing it...but you know me ...I'm a gluten for punishment...If it becomes too much, I'll just switch to another pattern...I already have a beautiful white shawl...and I wanted a beautiful Pink one...this fits the bill for me...but I can make adjustments.
So I might not post for a couple of days...

That looks like an incredibly difficult pattern - more power to you, Miss Ginny! I love the pink you've chosen.

Beautiful color of pink, Ginny! Hang in there. If you can't make this pattern work, I'm sure you can do it with another one.
