I am so excited to join this knitting group as we all "like very strongly", the word "love" has escaped me at this point due to errors in the pattern, "Victorian Lace Knitting Today"; no, love still applies despite the errors. Tomorrow is my birthday, and I will be ripping out the border I started on the cherry leaf pattern shoulder shawl. A huge "Thank you" to this list for pointing out the error in the border chart. I am using Fiddlesticks Country Silk in different shades of purple, blue and tan. The shawl will be so nice to use this summer. Actually, the corrected border pattern is working out fine; I need to fine tune my needle size so the border is the same as the shawl. Two years ago I knit my first shawl, a lacy Pi shawl with an online knit a long. It was a project I couldn't put down. Then, last year, I knit the Norwegian Folk shawl from the book "Folk Shawls". I look forward to working with this group in our adventure in lace. We lived near Cambridge many years ago, and I love the photography in the book, and the memories besides the wonderful knitting ideas.
