  1. Your shawl is lovely! The colors show nicely. How was the tencel to work with? I too made this shawl. The instructions are very clear – was a pleasure to knit. Wear it in good health!

  2. Absolutely beautiful! Don’t you just love the magic of lace?

  3. Enjoy wearing that beauty!

  4. Gorgeous! That yarn looks fantastic in that pattern. Forest Canopy is actually one of my WIP’s (one that I’m ACTUALLY working on!) I’m going to give it to my mom on mother’s day, so I’m loving seeing other people’s finished up & lovely!

  5. It’s lovely! Reminds me of the Leaf Lace from Fiber Trends. Which reminds me that I plant to knit that one day. Wonder why I never got around to it. Could it be the 3 other shawls I already have on the needles!!

  6. Oh, my! Another FO? Congrats! As usual, your work is just beautiful!

  7. Oh my, your shawl came out absolutley lovely. I’m so jealous. You really are whipping through those WIP’s.

  8. beautiful!
    Maybe I should try that pattern.. lace hates me.

  9. Love the color and the pattern – well done! I bet it’s silky soft too. I love the feel of tencel and it’s tough to boot.

  10. I decided to sit down and read your blog(for the first time) this evening. This has nothing to do with yarn! and everything to do with the underlying Joy in all of your posts. I spent two hours tonight reading, laughing, and watching you gracefully lead a joyful life in an imperfect world. How wonderful that you choose joy when the world offers so many other options. Your choice has made my day. It has challenged me to stop trying to be perfect (It is so not working anyway!) It has reminded me to enjoy trusting in God and not to try to take over my world.
    Thank you Maria!
