I :inlove: knitting this cowl! It is Romi's Ice Queen from Knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTicequeen.html). I used 1 skein of Rowan Kidsilk Haze, #633 Violetta and Bryspun needles. The beads (can't see them too well) are Swarovski crystals.

Lovely, very soft looking. :thumbsup: Smoking rings are nice lace projects to do, since you do not have to commit to them like shawls and they still make pretty accessory items.

Wow! It's beautiful. I know it's drop dead gorgeous in person. It looks so soft and I'm sure those crystals give it an awesome sparkle!

It's wonderful Ceci! Gorgeous!!!

I had to stare at it for a minute...I was trying to figure out where the COW was! "Hmmmm, that does not look like a cow...well, maybe in I squint, maybe if I tilt my head...hmmm, still doesn't look anything like a COW. What am I missing here?"

DOH! I had misread the word cowl. I didn't see the "L" next to the exclamation mark! :teehee:

Here are the modeling photos you requested. But I knit this for Joyce, a beloved friend.... And thank you for your lovely comments. I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this and am thrilled with how this turned out. And if you are thinking about knitting one - got for it! It is basically a feather and fan lace pattern.....

Yours is so pretty, which gives me great hope as I have all the materials to start one for my friend.

Did you like doing the beading?

Beautiful!! Lovely color and it looks so soft and delicate. The crystals are a nice touch. Since we can't see the crystals very well, could you tell us about how many you used?

Thank you.:aww: Don't delay -go ahead and knit it. It was a real pleasure (and not at all difficult). The beading was fun - and Romi gives a tutorial on how to attach the beads (http://rosemarygoround.blogspot.com/2007/08/tutorials-r-us.html).
The links to beading and the provisional cast on are on the pattern site (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTicequeen.html).

Since we can't see the crystals very well, could you tell us about how many you used?

I used version A with 60 crystals. I think I would attach more if I knit this again. The beads actually show up quite nicely in real life... just can't get them to sparkle in the photos.

That's funny - :) I always read clogs (on the old Fiber Trend felted clogs threads) to be dogs..... Maybe we need new glasses?
