Where is everyone??? Hope everyone is well!!! Here is a few pic of one of the lace patterns that I just completed!
It was one of the hardest challenges that I have ever done... EVER!

Anyway, here's a pic of the finished throw and also a few links to see it in full size. It turned out to be about 5.5 feet. Used Eco Wool in colorway 8049 "Tarnish"
It's from a book from Lacis...
Link on Ravelry
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sour...-kazuko-ichida
Knitted Lace Designs of The Modern Mode, Book 1 (Kazuko Ichida)
It's pattern #5 and it's a hexagonal floral motif. There are a few different names that they are calling it.
Glockenblume and La Promenade dans la Foret
Took about 3.5 hanks about 1600 yds.

Now onto another lace project! What to do next?
Come on peeps, the weather is getting colder!

I agree wholeheartedly! Looks like it was a tremendous amount of knitting, too! Great job, Gino!

Thanks Karina...
I purchased the book from www.lacis.com. It's quite an expensive book, but they have some of the most beautiful Herbert Neibling patterns in there.
Knitted Lace Designs of The Modern Mode, Book 1 (Kazuko Ichida)
Most all of the patterns are Neiblings, some are original and some have been altered slightly, meaning a different trim has been added or removed etc. But the ladies at Lacis told me that they are Neibling patterns.

Thanks Mary!!! Remember when I first approached you about the Hemlock and wanted you to do the KAL with me? And hold my hand through it all? You were so supportive and helpful. Thanks for that and now between you and Rebecca have got me hooked on lace!
After completing this pattern the repeats were so complicated as to so many different sts in one repeat, that when I look at another lace pattern, I say WOW how easy is that. LOLOLOL...

Not a bad thing, could be a lot worse things I could be addicted to.
Cheers All...
