Haven't posted in awhile but still lurking and checking out all the beautiful FO's y'all have done....here's my latest...yep, it's one of those weird shaped ones again...knitted completely in the round and triangular in shape. Soon to be published but still in the test knit stages, pattern is in written form currently with charts to be added soon. First photo of it drying on the blocking board.....Second, as a blob...what a difference blocking makes!

Ta Da!

The color is "Illumination" from bbknits.com...Lavish Lace (http://bbknits.com/merino-lace--hand-dyed.html)

It is 2-ply lace, a combination of 50% Merino and 50% Silk....a dream to knit with and the shine is amazing! Her pricing is wonderfully inexpensive and this particular yarn comes in 100% Merino as well.

That is absolutely beautiful. I wish I could knit that well. I'm going to keep practicing. I can't wait for you to have the pattern published.

That is so beautiful!! I think it even looks pretty good before you blocked it (but of course, blocking DOES make all the difference)!

This color is "Illumination" from bbknits.com in her Lavish Lace collection. It IS beautiful, various shades of Aqua throughout. 50% Merino and 50% Silk, very inexpensive as silk blends go, each skein has 700 yards for around $17...not bad. Bette is a dyer so each order is dyed upon placement.
