There's nuthin' like a friend to pull you out of a rut.

So, things have been a little tense in the Kingdom this summer. Lots of stuff goin' on. Not all of it good. However, my good friend Kate had just the remedy. 'Let's knit a really, really complicated lace shawl!!' And you know what? She was right! A girl can't dwell on the dark side of things if her mind and hands are focused somewhere else. So, here's what we're knittin'. With Cassie's help, of course.

It's a new shawl by Anne-Lise Maigaard who designed the shawl we knit last year. Alberta. Kate's knitting a bigger size with lots of beads. I'm taking it a little easier. Mine will have beads at the cast-off edge. Kate's will be fully loaded with 'em.


  1. A girl can never have too much bling, I always say! So, yes, mine will have 2000 ridiculously tiny beads.
    Cassie and the shawl are looking good.

  2. I clicked the link to the pattern - it's gorgeous!! I think I will stick to my thick wool, ribbed socks though.
    You are lucky Cassie is so calm; your knitting would be shredded if Polly got that close.
    Have fun!
