WIP Windmill Mat
Just started a Lace windmill table cloth. By far my most ambitious knitting project. Small needles and really thin cotton threat... I will post pictures when I get something.

The pattern is from a book: Projects in knitted Lace. I will have to take the scanned picture from the book and post...hummm tricky!

OKay an update it's been really tough going and frustrating!

I'll say, that's a very ambitious project!
All those pieces to block and sew together.

Good for you. Always expand your knitting horizons.

Yes I hope my niece will like it. I plan on giving it to her

I will be visiting with my aunt who gave me the cotton to try knitting lace. She is an amazing knitter.
