Olha, I understand what you're saying, and I agree. In fact, I may end up giving this away since I'm not really much of a lace person myself. I love the look of lace knitting (or is it knitted lace?), though, and wanted to try it.

I'm actually quite astounded at having successfully completed this shawl. But I really have to give credit where credit's due--the designer created a gorgeous pattern with such simple stitches!

This is lovely. I adore shawls and this looks so difficult but oh so beautiful. You should be very proud. I would be if I did something that intricate.

Beautiful! Those eye-like patterns remind me of the gorgeous tail of a peacock. Great job on your first chart project.

Yeah, I think they're supposed to be live oak leaves, but I've never seen a live oak leaf yet that had holes in the middle of it.

Oh well, it makes for a nice pattern regardless of what they call it, and yes, it does look kind of like a peacock tail.

I'm thinking of entering this in a local craft competition here in my hometown. But my husband says I'm being mean and unfair to the little old ladies--you know, the ones who only know how to make granny square afghans and toilet roll covers. I say, "Bahhhh!" to that!
