Isn't it lovely!



You mean you think it just looks like a soft, mushy blob?








Here I will spread it out a bit for you so you can have a slightly better view.









Even using a 60" long circular knitting needle, that is about as much as I can spread it out. There are 9 sections like this and, when the centre is finished, each row will be all the lace. Only 140 stitches in each section when I reach that point.

Bought the yarn and pattern at the K-W Knitters Fair in 2010 when I made the mistake of taking a knitting Granddaughter with me. Let's just say that she did very well for herself.








To give you an idea, this next picture shows the yarn with a penny. It falls in the category of "cobweb" weight.





And maybe one year this is what it will look like.




And before you comment, Jess, NO it is obviously not done yet.

it's gorgeous - but why jess?

And the peacock is still my most favourite, anyway
