Not quite 20 inches!!

If you've read my last post you'll know I'm determined to make great progress on the lace garter I'm making Krista - so much so that I've vowed not to pick up Fantasy Triptych until I've got 20 inches of lace made...

It's quite tricky to measure lace in progress, as you work on a diagonal, but I think I've got 19 inches done. The lace is living on my lace table, I put a tea towel over it when I'm not working on it. Here's a pic of how the whole pillow looks:

I use large safety pins through the spangles to keep the bobbins in order in the areas I'm not working on currently.

This is a close up of the actual pattern - much better now it's long enough to photograph on the blue cloth of my lace pillow, rather than on top of the pattern!!

We're about to watch a movie (Revolutionary Road - our latest rental from Lovefilm), if I really work well tonight I might hit the 20 inches mark... just another 8-10 inches to go!!!

Jo, that lace and your work is absolutely amazing! Your friend is so lucky to have you make this special gift for her on her wedding day!

However, the TW police are very upset with you!!!! My dragon has been getting my full attention!

I changed the format of my comments on my WW blog, let me know if you can comment!
