Somebody Went Where I Dared Not

Remember when I was in limbo about painting my peacock shawl.  I ultimately decided that I didn’t have the talent to hand paint it well or the fortitude to gain the talent – so ivory it stayed.  But I’d like to think that if I had painted it, it would be as beautiful as this […]

Earning A Star

Is having a KAL like earning a star in Hollywood?  Last week, Ailsa kindly asked if she could start a knit-a-long for the Pretty As A Peacock shawl.  And would I be willing to pop in now and then to ooh and aah over everyone’s shawls?  To say I felt honored is an understatement.  Of […]

I was incredibly touched by the overwhelming response I received from the last post about the peacock shawl. Touched? That’s how you are going to describe it? Let’s try flabbergasted. Bowled over. Need to sit down from the shock. And the response – I think unexpectedly huge sums it up nicely. The encouragement from all […]

Almost Ready To Fly

When one is knitting a lace shawl, there reaches a point where photos of the shawl look the same.  The fact that an additional ten thousand stitches that feel like eighteen million gazillion have been knitted means nothing to the camera.  Zilch, nada, nothin’.  It looks like a lump of string with some pointy things poking […]
