thank you for all the loverly comments on the shawl and the Girl :-)
i was so terrified it was going to look like a giant fried egg!
this was my first piece of lace...as far as knitting. i have lots of crochet lace pieces.
it was such a learning experience.
my hubby said it was tremendous and like something from one of those magazines.
when i asked what magazines he alluded to IK, Vogue and those things i force him to get at barnes n noble. apparently socks are not impressive to him but this is :-)
i am now an artisan and not a hobbyist in his eyes.
when i asked tirzah if it was what she hoped for she said, it is so much more.
which reduced me to tears.
just like creation shouts of G-d's love for us, i hope this will always remind her of my love for her.
now i am off to do the other stuff for friday.
thank you again for all your encouraging and loving comments. :-)
