My lord, that must have taken you AGES... but well worth the time investment, it is absolutely beautiful. I haven't attempted anything that big with lacework yet, i keep thinking, man, that'll take me like 2 years to make!!!

Well done, big pats on the back for you! :cheering:

Thanks for all the lovely compliments!

This was a project I'd been wanting to try my hand at for a couple of years, but it wasn't until about May of last year (06) that I found a yarn I liked for it (Dale of Norway's Stork yarn). As intricate as it looks, it's really nowhere near as difficult to do as it looks, just a bit time consuming. I worked on it on and off for about six months.

Now, in reaction, I'm working on something mindless (meaning something I can do and watch tv at the same time without worrying about losing track of the pattern :)), a Harry Potter scarf, done in double knitting for extra warmth (and because I didn't have circular needles in the right size :D)
