oh, sorry i didn't mention the yarn. it's lace from handpaintedyarn.com
colourway is "esmeraldas".
i love the colour, but should have got the 100% merino lace instead as it is softer (a colleague got merino lace)

Beautiful.  I like the sense of harmony the color and lace pattern create.  Your skill also deserves praise.  My clumsy knitting aspires to flow with such grace.

You did beautiful work.  And! You inspired me to decide to learn to knit.  It can't be THAT different from crocheting..can it?
