FO- Peach Valentine Tablecloth
OMIGOSH! This has got to be my favorite one so far and I will just HAVE to do it in several colors! I'm giddy with excitement at how pretty it is and can honestly say it IS a lace beauty!

Using Kinzel's "Valentine" design in her "First Book of Modern Lace Knitting" for the cheval set, I extended the hearts three times. I also made several pattern row changes to make sure that it radiated properly. It measures 36" and I used size 3(US) needles and a 5/2 mercerized, peach colored cottonthread.

Thanks... remember now, it's done on circulars, continuously, knit side only and lots of skps, yos, k2togs....just a matter of running everyone out of the house, leaving the tv off, concentrating and the pure desire to see the finished piece. Oh yeah...and I usually get to knit about 4-5 hours daily.

LOL! High praise and you're sweet to say this but I can't really take that crown! Maybe "Idiot Doily Tablecloth Queen" would suit better!
