PimpernelSmith  what size needle are you using?
Is it very thin, more like lace knitting? I'm really thinking of the sea silk therefore asking.

Has anyone used the "lady Godiva" by Handmaiden?

can't wait to see yours finished.

I did a swatch with both size 5 and 4 (USA sizing) -- the consensus was the size four looked the best...which is pretty much what I expected since I ran across a 1-skein shawl/stole pattern for seasilk that called for size 4.

If you go back two pages you can see a photo of my first bit, with a quarter coin to show scale.

It's fun because the colors pool and streak differently as the work widens!

I haven't worked with the Godiva, but someday I hope... I was actually looking for some to handle and examine when I came across the seasilk and fell in love!

Whichever you choose, please keep us posted!

Well I finished last week but some things came up and I didn't get to post.

Anyway, my mom claimed it for herself and I'm happy she wanted it because the guy and I sorta kinda broke up for some reason unknown to me yet. I'll bribe him with the letters he sent me promising he would never leave me later, but first, Pictures!!

I did 20 straight rows on 5mm needles, with the wonderfully cheap yarn <3 It's a bit over 2 meters long!!! It only took just over 3 balls (I guess that's 3 and 1/4) so it cost me 6 euro's  Shocked I swear I thought I'd need tons more balls for this but I'm bad at making an estimate. The colors in the back of the pic are the closest I think to the real thing

Here's my mom wearing it (modeling it.. she had to do a whole pose thing.. 25 pictures and this is the only one she kinda likes)

Those colors look beautiful with your mom's hair. Maybe you were making it for her all along.

And I hate it when guys break it off for no apparent reason. That has certainly happened to me more than once. Well, it's his loss, you're obviously a very talented knitter and a sweet girl to make that for him.

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Red Alibi -
It's beautiful! The price makes it even prettier. Wink
Looks great on your mom. I agree, it may have been destined for her all along.

Sorry to hear about the boy problem. Sad Try not to waste too much energy on him. Remember, you don't want to be with anyone who doesn't want to be with you.

Here's a progress shot...

Still a few more increases to go. Had to weight it down in the picture since it's still in that roll-like-it's-your-job phase.

Oh I have such a crush on those purple colors
