lace knitting





Finished May block for A tisket a tasket the Bunny hill BOM I added a second Butterfly to fill out the bottom.

Still addicted to lace knitting, I made a the "flower basket shawl" not pictured yet, I still need to dress it, but I also finshed the Peacock tail and leaf shawl by Nancy Bush in her book Knitted Estonia Lace. The fountain pen shawl which was in the spring issue of Knits I used Gloss a silk and merino blend in a pewter grey from Knit Picks. The peacock shawl and flower basket are also Gloss in celery, yeah I bought to much LOL
Almost done with the Willow house for Home sweet home then only 2 more blocks before I start the borders.



Also I just started Madlii shawl in a lovely shade of lavendar, had this yarn for a very long time, it's so fine Skacel lace merino, didn't think I would ever have the nerve to use it, but after 3 trys I finally got it started.....

Betty,
Your lace pieces are beautiful and I love the colors you used in the butterfly block. I really like that block and think it would be a neat quilt with different colored blocks.
