Layla, laid out.

I've been felled with the worst cold I've had in a long time. Home from work and surrounded by Kleenex! But in between the hacking and coughing, I managed to finish the Layla shawl.
It's not the greatest picture, but better ones will follow when it's off the blocking board. After finally conquering the starflowers, it went pretty well. Slowly - with beads and nupps and more - but well.


I was working to have this done by next weekend, but unfortunately, the event I was going to wear it to has been postponed. But now that it's off the needles, I can focus on getting the French Braid cardigan done. After that, I'll only have three WIPs on the go! Amazing!

Oh, wow. That shawl is so beautiful. You are an amazingly fast knitter... and with lace!! I'm still working on speed; I sure tend to be extra cautious and slow with lace. You are going to look stunning when you wear this shawl...should be really fun!

Lovely! (And I'm not brave enough to count my WIPs!)
