Cigars? Cigarettes? Smoke Rings?

Anne has released me from my vow of silence so I can now reveal that the green blob is a smoke ring:

You can click on the photo to bring up a very large version of the picture.

Anne dyed the yarn and is offering free shipping on kit preorders. So head over to Wooly Wonka Fibers (click on the the “New Products” link in the sidebar) and buy yourself a kit for some summer knitting.

    Beautiful! Congratulations, it’s a lovely pattern :-)

    Are there any plans to sell just the pattern (for download)? I have tons of laceweight at home already, but would be really interested in trying this pattern.

    Beautiful Susan…just beautiful!

  16. Heather on 16 May 2007 at 6:23 am

    Very delicate and spring-y!

  17. Trina on 16 May 2007 at 6:52 am

    That is so lovely. You do beautiful work!

  18. elizabeth on 16 May 2007 at 7:25 am

    Beautiful! How appropriate to pose it with your lily of the valley!

  19. Beth S. on 16 May 2007 at 7:29 am

    That’s a beautiful photo! And it looks like a fun project. I bet the lily-of-the-valley lace is much easier to knit in the round than back and forth. ;-)

  20. Joyce on 16 May 2007 at 7:48 am

    Beautiful! I would love to buy the pattern if it is available without the yarn.j

    Absolutely beautiful.

  26. Birdsong on 16 May 2007 at 6:41 pm

    Lovely, lovely work! I did think Anne’s idea of a bride wearing it was a novel yet fitting tribute to your artistry.

  27. Sabrina on 17 May 2007 at 8:43 am

    That’s beautiful! Wonderful work!

  28. Erin on 17 May 2007 at 12:28 pm

    Stunning Susan. Absolutely beautiful.

  29. Kathy on 17 May 2007 at 2:49 pm

    I love how much the lily of the valley stitch looks like the real lily of the valley in front of the smoke ring. Beautiful!
