  1. That is amazing! I have never knit a lace shawl, but have been wanting to. I’d love to make this one; just how difficult is it?

  2. The speed at which you knit just amazes me. I can’t imagine how fast your fingers must fly. This is a gorgeous piece!

  3. Absolutely beautiful! I really think you should include that “come hither” photo in the catalog though…it may not show the shawl’s detail, but it definately captures the way the knitter will feel while wearing it!!

  4. YAY! I am delighted to see you were comfortable enough with all your charts and graping and doo-hingeys 🙂 to publish the shawl.

    It’s beautiful as usual!!

  5. So glad the pattern is ready! Thanks for doing that so quickly. I ordered it, and now I don’t know if paypal has given you my email. If not, you can use the email I used here.

  6. what an amazing wrap. I love that first photo with all the light and shadows.
    totally beautiful – absolutely dramatic.

  7. Oh Anne, it is amazingly beautiful!
    Congrats on getting this done and writing out the pattern!

  8. Anne, it’s absolutely beautiful. All of the adjectives have been used. “Twinkle, twinkle, little star. . .”
