What, this old thing?

Did I mention I finished this?


About a month ago, I guess. I was amazed by how much dye came out:


And blocking was kind of insane -

But it's done, and beautiful. I think I may wash and re-block again before giving it away in a little bit - I've gotten new tips on getting the dye to either stick or go away, so that's a goal. But I am terribly proud of it. I hope its recipient knows how much I love her.

I think the curse of gifted lace is that the person will never really truly understand just how much love goes in to something like this. But you love them so much that it doesn't even matter.

That is so lovely! I'm incredibly impressed with both your dying and your knitting.
