Ethereal Fichu completed & blocked by Maggs




I cannot tell you how impressed I am by my lovely & talented bestest bud Maggie....she has taken my Ethereal Fichu from the blob of rosy, messy stitches & turned it into a creation of beautissimissness....she really has....
and as friends go, she is pretty awesome ESPECIALLY considering the fact that she has been feeling less than perfect or even just blah for the past few weeks. I understand that old age takes its toll but this was too much even for her!!! LOL!!! but in all seriousness, I can never thank her enough for taking the time & trouble to do this for me. Maggie....well, you know how I feel about you, old girl....many, many thanks...

now, give me a moment & I shall present....ta da....my Ethereal Fichu in all its glory.
I shall attempt to post them in order from the pile on the floor to the glorious, in the blocking stage, completed item.

when last I spoke to Maggs, earlier today, she had stretched it another 8" or so & straightened it out because she said the line was crooked, but you sure couldn't tell if it was crooked from what I could see...to me it was just PRETTY!!! REALLY PRETTY!!!! she is a perfectionist tho & that's 1 of the things I love about her. especially when she is being picky with MY knitting!!! ha ha ha!!!!! anyways, I'll post another pic if she decides to send it to me but if not, these will just have to do!

WOW!!! Ollie you did an amazing job knitting this. It's just beautiful. And Maggie did an incredible job blocking it. Isn't it amazing what a nice soak and stretch does for lace?
