I have to admit, I had serious doubts. The thing really did look like a big bowl of alpaca-flavored ramen, and it was hard to believe that a bowl of tepid water and a lot of pins could turn it into a thing of drapey beauty. But now I have seen the miracle first hand, and I am appropriately hooked.

This beautiful baby is going to the prayer shawl ministry after it is blessed on Sunday. It is harder to let it go than I expected, especially since it’s SO BEAUTIFUL, but now I have experienced the glory that is at the end of the lacy tunnel, so I can do it again. In fact it’s taking a good bit of self control not to cast on another bit of lacy business.

Actually, not that much self control. I did just start a little something in a handpainted suri/mohair blend the other night. It takes the edge off pretty good.
