A Lacy Little Number


Thank you very much for your birthday wishes. It is so sweet that people I've never met in person take time to wish me well.






I had a lovely day with cake and family and friends. I may even knit a little.


Every now and then, I feel the allure of lace. I enoy the challenge of the pattern, the feel of the yarn, and airy lightness of the fabric.




This is the Adamas Shawl which is meant to be worn at my little Princess' Baptism later this month.


It is knit with Seasilk in the Lily Pond colourway. This is a great pattern to use up laceweight yarns as you knit until you think you're almost done, do one more pattern repeat and cast off. I think this shawl will likely be a gift for my baby girl. Maybe she'll wear it to baptise her own baby one day.





Perhaps I'll knit it again. But then, there are so many tempting lace patterns...

Very pretty lace, gorgeous girls (all 3 of you). Gotta say, I'm a little distressed at how big #2 has gotten...How'd that happen so quickly?

Ooh, it's so pretty.

Like T, I also want to eat her! But I want to eat that cake more...
