Clandestine

Behind the scenes I’ve been a busy little bee.

The magnitude of this accomplishment is underscored by the corner which runneth over: so big is this beast, I had to use the armrest of my couch.

Full FO report to follow.

    Can’t wait! Can’t wait! The difference betweent the unblocked and blocked lace is staggering… what an amazing project!

    You know, I pass a Mountain Ash Road on the way home from work everyday, and every time I notice the sign I think “poor old Mountain Ash–I wonder if it’ll get done?” But Mountain Ash is poor no more! Hooray!

    WOW! WOW! WOW!

    I can’t believe you’ve been secretly finishing that up without letting us know ;-)

    Beautiful.

    And can’t wait to see you showing it off.

    I’ll have to add another ‘WOW’ to the mix!! That is so impressive! I’ve never ventured into lace work as it looks so intimidating and then I see this and I feel VERY intimidated! Nice work…

    My mouth just dropped open. Fantastic work, just amazing. You are inspiring me to get started on those larger lace projects I’ve been putting off.

    Ooooo-wee. That’s some nice knitting, there. And blocking. It just makes the whole, long, lace commitment so worth it, eh? Fabulous.

    And here I thought Sir Ash had abondoned us… It looks stunning, I’ll be looking forward to seeing the “done blocking” shots!

    I didn’t think you were coming back to this project. I look forward to seeing the finished object and hearing your tale of how it got finished.

    Wow. It’s almost been a year. You have incredible perseverance and it really pays off. Lovely!

    wow wow wow…I’m a beginning knitter, but none of that garter stitch business for me. THIS is what I aim for…I’m not even sure I understand the concept of blocking, but I believe this is a good example…

    GUYS AND GALS,

    I REALLY DON’T THINK THAT THAT’S MOUNTAINASH. AS SOON AS I SAW THE PIC, I WENT STRAIGHT TO KATHY’S ENTRY WITH THE PICTURE PREVIEWS ON VICTORIAN LACE TODAY.

    IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, IN THE “REPLACEMENT: IN MY HOT LITTLE HANDS, SCANNER: FIRED UP” BLOG ENTRY, YOU’LL SEE THAT SHE’S KNIT THE EIGHTH SHAWL IN THE FIRST COLUMN. THE ONE IN THE PICTURE IS WHITE.

    Nonetheless, I am utterly amazed that you could manage to keep such a beaut’ from us!

    I have been thinking a lot about that shawl lately. I was going to email you and ask if you had ever gotten a translation for the pattern from, I don’t know, someone that you said was going to write it for you. I want mine now!!!

    Can’t wait to see the whole thing, I’m glad you didn’t give up on it.

  13. Sonya

    I can’t even come close to deciphering what it is – I’ll just accept its cobweb loveliness. It is a beauty, can’t wait for the glamour shot.

  14. Liz (the crazed weasel)

    oh, wow, grumpitudinousness, that is simply beautiful. No, wrong word: exquisitely complicatedly beautiful. Oh, the joy of knitting that uses that excess brain capacity one has lying around…

  15. Teyani

    absolutely lovely – can’t wait to see the full effect – and so glad to see that you also pull your deep ends out as much as I do. I began to wonder if I was doing something wrong… thanks for the reassuring photos.
