... the 70 diamonds shawl turned out beautifully and deserves praises in so many ways ... the pattern delightful albeit having me a bit flustered at times because lace knitting and talking and lollygagging about doesn't always make for smooth progress ... let's just say a few rows were backed out numerous times! Happens to the best of us. I love how it turned out and looks as if embossed on air if that could be so. The madelinetosh prairie lasted and lasted and lasted ... 51/119 grams of the skein or 42% ... should be able to squeeze out another one if not even 75 diamonds ... now we have bang for the bucks!!! Wanna take a peek?!
