Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? (She says - giddy with excitement!)

My Diamond Fantasy Shawl is finis! My problem yesterday was the fact that I have this complusive need to interpret patterns so their difficulty level increases by 10. If I slow down, BREATHE, and realize most designers/pattern writers are not out to put me in the looney-bin - the pattern works!

I thought this pattern to be fun, not difficult, and well written. It took me less than 2 weeks to complete ... got to love that! (Now, I just need to find a huge blocking board as 'the bed thing' is getting old ... suggestions?)

I am already off & knitting on the lacey Maple Leaves Scarf with some lace weight yarn I dyEd. Christmas will be here before we know it! Remember .... Inspire Art! Create Art! Buy Art! Be ART!! ... Comments, please!

It's beautiful, Kary! I have blocking problems too - the only beds in the house are a twin with a regular mattress and a queen sized *WATER BED*.. I don't want to be sticking pins in the latter {g}..

Just lovely, Kary! I hope I'll finish my DFS one of these days! I use my queen-sized bed, but really need a King (in more ways that one lololol!)

Kary, it's fabulous. You did a great job and amazingly fast too :)

Can't help with the blocking, I'm afraid. I use my double bed, but it's not usually quite big enough for shawls.

Beautiful Kary! I will now have to start designing with the sole intent to put you in the loony bin though. Must be the exception to the rule! Bwah ha ha!
