i love you more today than yesterday . . .

this post is only about one thing: unadulterated, slutty lust for handknit cashmere lace. i want to sleep with this thing. as in, every night. as in, NOT sleeping, but playing.

course, that could compromise my marriage vows—you know, the ones that say i’ll be true . . . hmm, does cheating with an inanimate object count?? i can’t promise that it was only for the thrill . . .

but, maybe, after taking all these smoky, sexy pictures, david will understand that my affections must be shared . . .

(yeah, and i saw him getting into the mood with it, too, don’t think i missed that . . . it’s a piece that inspires touching. let’s just say, he couldn’t keep his hands off it—kept muttering about styling the folds—ha! h’s a “stylist” now. hee-hee!).

i gotta run to class. more later—i got more! i got my knit freak on this week.

    Very beautiful! I’d love the pattern too. I’m still knitting on my Moth shawl, but not as speedy as some of the others ;-)

  3. PumpkinMama says:

    Gorgeous! You’ve created another beauty, wish you had touch-o-vision, it looks so soft and drapey.

  4. Hooney says:

    Lovely pattern, color, and drape. Did you delibrately wear the outfit to complement the color of the shawl?

  5. margene says:

    I’ve never seen or heard more beautiful yarn p0rn. You could have a, a, a, you know…three some. ;-)

  6. Erica L says:

    Absolutely beautiful as always! I am so envious that I don’t think I could turn a deeper shade of green if I wanted to :) This would be another “must have pattern”.

  7. KarenK says:

    Looking forward to seeing your pattern for sale. It is Fearless Fibers cashmere, right? I looked through several back posts but wasn’t sure whether I found the right information. Lovely shawl!

  8. Monica says:

    Beautiful. You know, if you take it to Rhinebeck and WEAR it, you’ll get a lot of unexpected attention and touching.

  9. Jen says:

    I’m drooling

  10. Karen B. says:

    Who wouldn’t want to be wrapped up in such gawgeous cashmere lace?

  11. sogalitno says:

    can’t wait for the pattern – what was the yarn again?

  12. Nicole says:

    Wow! Everyone is knitting shawls! I’m so inspired by all this gorgeous lace that I’m seeing around. I must bring out my Swallowtail again. Probably tonight.

  13. Laura says:

    Anne, it’s *gorgeous*! I can see why you want to sleep with it. ;-)

  14. Kim says:

    Okay Anne…. you CASHMERE TROLLOP, you!!!!

  15. Lynne E. says:

    You’ve answered a burning question of mine: when you’ve knitted a triangular shawl, what do you do with the points that hang down in front?

  16. Ahhh. I definitely support your bad behavior! It’s beautiful and I can only imagine how great it feels.

  17. gray la gran says:

    oh! it’s lovely. and i want to touch it too!

  18. Lynn says:

    Oh my goodness, it drapes like nobody’s business! I shall go console myself with my WIP, the Elann Crop Cardi, so it doesn’t get its feelings hurt.

    I knew cashmere was *soft*; I never dreamed it could be *fluid*.

  19. Dave says:

    It’s incredible — perfect match of pattern, colour, yarn. The drape is amazing. Can I come pet it?

  20. Leah says:

    Lovely! Can’t say more than what’s already been said. The color, the drape! Smoking!!

  21. Emily says:

    Wow, that is really beautiful! I just stumbled upon your blog and I’m so impressed with your knitting. I really need to start making some more intricate projects…I like the way you’re wearing it as well, I’ve wondered what people really did with triangular shawls!

  22. Carole says:

    Stunning! Truly, you are an artist.

  23. Melissa W. says:

    Anne let me have the honor of putting this on today and it felt like “an angel put it’s wings around me”. It’s gorgeous on her site but more so in person!

  24. Lene says:

    You did it again! Another beauty!

  25. Mary Jo says:

    woooo….just drooling at that shawl, the softness, the way it falls. I can almost feel its touch against my skin.

  26. Teresa C says:

    Oh! just gorgeous. I can almost feel the cashmere-y goodness!

  27. tigerlilith says:

  28. Cheryl says:

    Beautiful! What a wonderful fabric, such drape! Well done!

  29. DebbieKnitter says:

    Oh my GAWD this shawl is unbelieveable. We got to ..well…touch it in class…STUNNING I tell ya, just stunning. ALTHOUGH, for anyone trying to figure out how to get it off of Anne, forget it!!! I tried my dangdest last night to no avail. I am not out of ideas yet though. Personally, I think she should wear it Sunday..it will be safe..trust me!!;)

  30. stacey says:

    that is simply beautiful. The color, the drape, the (obvious) softness! Bravo!!

  31. Jennifer says:

    That is so incredibly beautiful! The color, the drape, the border… Excellent photos too!

  32. Jo says:

    Anne, I am lost for words for once. That is simply the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Yo cashmere, here I come (talk to you about the pattern later when I’ve tracked down the wild cashmere and wrested great handfuls into my hunting sack).

  33. Kyrie says:

    Wow! Came over looking for the Wings of the Moth pattern, but this one just blows me away! Fabbo! Can’t wait until it’s available.

  34. Beth S. says:

    You wear that shawl so elegantly! Do you give lessons? :-)

  35. Karyn says:

    The shawl, of course, is gorgeous! I hope that you’ll consider selling the pattern. Great yarn porn, too!

  36. angie Cox says:

    I often want to roll in my stash …but I must say the colours are fabulous and it’s such beautiful work .

  37. HollyO says:

    I think the unadulterated, slutty lust is totally contagious. Yep. I’m pretty sure I must now run directly to the yarn store and get some cashmere lace weight yarn and cast on. Mmmmmm, hmmmm. InDEED.

  38. christine says:

    Oh, lovely. I’m about to finish my Moth……….is that going to be a purchaseable pattern soon?

  39. Aija says:

    Amazing, just amazing!

    (You’re really beautiful! I don’t think I’ve seen a photo of you before. Sorry, I know its weird but I just had to say it! :) )

  40. Barbp says:

    That’s absolutely beautiful and a great photo shoot to show it’s true potential. Another job well done.

  41. Juno says:

    I’m so behind…but this is why I love you…you want to have carnal knowledge of the cashmere and you aren’t afraid to say so.

  42. Juno says:

    Also, you’re really freaking talented. Forgot to mention that part.

  43. ambermoggie says:
