Oh Claire! Those are beautiful! The lost pattern was unfortunately on a personal website/blog about blocking her silk lace project, and was triangular . My memory has fallen and it can't get up!

Just one more, even though you've made your purchase.

This one is lovely, could it be the one?

Any chance you might find it in your browser history?

That's just too pretty.

Arsenic and Old Lace appeal to my sense of .... what? the absurd?

That is really, really close to it! You are amazing! How'd you do that, web search sensei???

The only thing I truly dislike about buying most patterns online is that I can't really get a sense of the pattern or special stitches used, so I had to buy the pattern to see if it's workable or not.

We all have our knitting druthers. One of mine is that I loathe working nupps, popcorns, and anything like them. If I find anything like that in In Dreams, I'll go to another pattern.

Sensei, you have provided me a wealth of beauties from which to choose. I can't thank you enough!

ETA: and it's bookmarked!

Oh dear, wished I could. I'm one of those weirdos who clears cache & history to save space on my antiquated iPad1.

Tongue in cheek, I'd say sense of reality.

Still looking at pictures this may be the above-mentioned shawl on a different blog:

Aeolian Shawl

I've seen this shawl before on ravelry, never realized it could be so beautiful. A fine weight may be the reason for this.

Claire,you absolutely rock! THAT'S IT! You are THE web search sensei extraordinaire! Even better, the pattern is free, free, free on knittyspin! Bookmark in place!!

<Insert your favorite scatological epithet here>!! 9 stitch nupps... do I get over myself with the whole nupp thing? Maybe they're easier in lace weight thread?

ETA: and beads... ye gods! What say you all to this shawl in white mulberry silk with size 8 seed pearl beads?

I'm going to start now. Must steel up my courage.

Nupps are not so hard and they are just so darn adorable There are only 90 of them and they are easier if you employ a few tricks.

A seven stitch nupp may be perfectly adequate, the k1 and yo's on RS knitted loosely. On the wrong side, there are a couple of cheats, one involving a crochet hook.

I believe I read somewhere, 90 beads. I haven't added beads to knitting.....yet. I am actually quite anxious to try.

I say yes That yarn and the pearl seed beads would be gorgeous. You can do it!
