This is the Dazzle Shawl, designed by me and the yarn was dyed by me but knitted by my good friend, Pixie, as I didn't have time to do it and I needed a new shawl design for my Lace Variety Club. It's knitted in my Silky Merino, which is a silk/merino blend laceweight yarn with 1200 m per skein.It turned out to be a huge shawl, much bigger than I expected and it's gorgeous. I'm really pleased with it. I must get around to knitting one myself soon. If you're interested in the pattern , it can be purchased from my Etsy shop or Ravelry.

Kiri in Silk

I made this for a girlfriend's 50th birthday:

I made it with Claudia Handpaints Lace Silk, less than a skein and size 3 Addi turbo Lace circs.
The pattern was so easy to memorize that I could do it anywhere, even in the car, which is a nice thing because usually my lace projects have to be done at home. The silk was enjoyable, but I had to get used to it because I knit mostly with wool.

Heartland Lace Shawl

Heartland 5

I finished Heartland in July of 2008, but never got around to posting it because I was huge with child. I gave her the proper photo shoot and written description on my blog.
