Swan Lake

Yes, it is true, after 3 months my MS3 is finally finished, blocked and ready to wear.
I am ridiculously proud of this project, mistakes and all.
I really feel like I have learnt a lot since August, and I am no longer scared of lace!

The Malabrigo lace was just devine, it is so soft and I know it is going to be really warm.

I'm not sure you can see, but there are little tiny brown seed beads all over the stole and they give a little weight to the ends.

There are loads of mistakes, but I don't really care. It still looks beautiful. I really can't believe I made it!

I'd say realistically, rather than ridiculously, proud! It's beautiful and so glad you are chuffed with it:)

It is absolutely gorgeous. You should put it on and run down the street showing it off!

Even better fully blocked - and it was beautiful before!

Did the blue come out? Have non-knitters in your life been impressed?

OMG! Your first lace? That is SO beautiful! I am going to have to have another attempt at lace - we Roos have to keep up with each other!
And yes - an STR joint mailing - what a fab idea! Email me if you decide to go ahead - I'm in!
