i love those first two, if they were smaller than im thinking they are ((if theyre ornaments, 2-3 inches long, right?)) like around an inch they would be seriously awesome pendants, i have a few teardrop ones, but more pointy would be very very unique, keep up the awesome work alana!

i know, its one of those, hopefully ill be able to do it someday before shes past being able to appreciate it kind of things...but it is really gorgeous, and im sure she would love it, her whole house ((and the house she lived in before the current one)) has butterflies everywhere.

hey, if you have varying amounts and a umber of different colors, but theyre all lace weight, what about this one >>> http://www.knittingdaily.com/freepatterns/shawls_stoles/Icelandic_Lace_Shawl_165-1.html

uses 900 yards according to the list, and varying amounts of four colors, but you could break down the one huge amount of yarn and do it in two colors, would make it not so badfor yardage actually...and its a pretty shawl.  ((ive been eyeing it myself! lol))

its okay, i had to redo my whole package because my graphics for it accidentally got deleted ((doing a stencil kit)) so i had to redo stuff and come up with stuff and figure stuff out....so its about half done, but i need to go shopping for paint and such, and i need more stencil blanks ((i dislike paper stencils, why do all that work to only use it once!))

i know!  with school starting and ive got an extra class that starts on the 17th and ive got my birthday NEXT FRIDAY EEEEEEE im gonna be sixteen....ill probably start signups either the 10th and go through the 17th or do them the 21st through the 28th...which works better for everyone?

wow mom, wow heather...awesomeness.

great job superh!

ETA-- for the lace weight yarn, take a look at this list >>>

its all sorts of shawls, some free patterns, some patterns to buy, some from mags and books...but theyre all catagorized by how much yarn they use...super useful when you have x amount of yarn and dont know what to do with it.

thanks guacamole, its really not nearly as hard as it looks, i was pretty intimidated by it, but i wanted to do this for her, and hey, it turned out pretty good if i do say so myself, the best advice i can give as a newbie lace knitter though, is if youre using the written instructions, print a second copy and cut each row apart and adhere it to a notecard, punch a hole in the corner of all the notecards and hook them together with a ring of some sort ((i used split key rings, but a binder ring would be super easy to use)) that way youre not trying to knit and stay focused on the one row that youre working on.

thanks kokeshi, i think she will, having been raised in india with all of the hand made things there, she has a very nice appreciation for had made things, even though she doesnt do this stuff ((shes a web developer...thats her passion))
