If I do say so myself, that is one pretty shawl in progress!! I am madly in love, despite the fact that this is one of the hardest patterns I have ever tried to keep track of. The yarn is absolutely luscious. I have been trying to come up with some clever way to express how truly fine, even minuscule, this yarn really is.... But dammit, my thunder has been stolen by the fact that they already named it cobweb lace! But may I say, no more accurate name has been come up with for a kind of yarn. It is barely there, it is so fine. And the fabric!! I feel like I could pass the whole thing through the eye of a needle, if not for the beads! And LOOK at the beads- they really DO look like rain drops about to fall.... I can't wait to block it and see that transformation! Knitting love.
