Lace and dangles...

It is off needles.


And blocked.


And dangled.


And hung up.


And did I mention...DONE.


Take that evil lace pattern...






As you can see, Sophie would have been totally annoyed if I had done the cafe curtain version on the bottom half.  The dangly, beady thingys are from a beaded bar hanging (three of them) that Wes had bought for me several years ago.  After finishing the last two rows, binding off and making the rod pocket, I spent TWO hours meticulously tying/sewing on each and every bead strand.  Hanging in the window, I can see the pattern error, but since I was consistent and did not fix it, it is repeated a second time thus making it intentional.  Right?  <that is your cue to say, error, what error?  looks perfect to me>


I am DONE with lace...


...until tomorrow, when I get back to the February Lady Sweater and finish sorting throught the five patterns (all with lace, of course <rolling my eyes at myself>) that I just printed off Ravelry.  


Now, peoples, it is Friday, so you know what that means?  


Besides that it is "Jimmy Johns Friday"...


"Ya gotta see the baby!"


(name that sitcom/episode)


No, really, ya gotta see the "babies" that all the proud mamas are showing off at Tami's.

  2. What error? It looks perfect to me!

    (Seriously. It looks amazing, it's a perfect pattern to be in a window like that with light coming through it, and I love the beads, too.)

  3. I love that! It looks like it was quite the tedious project, though.

  4. That is so pretty. I love all the dangling things. I bet when the sun shines through it will be quite a show.

  5. The beads look nice. And, of course, so does the lace! Can't see the "design elements" from here...

  6. Error, what error? I swear that I cannot see it.

    Adding the beads was a terrific idea -- I love how it all came together.
