Speaking of Green - Speaking of Magic

Isn't it amazing how what comes off the needles looking like this

Ends up like this after a good soaking and pinning?

Green Tea Flower Basket

Gosh, I love knitting lace; it manages to calm me down when nothing else seems able to (of course, am also happy to have something to show for my work; that's always nice). Love blocking lace, too, as it effects such a transformation.

Really, really enjoyed this project. Heck, was such a joy to work, it practically knitted itself. The pattern is Evelyn Clark's Flower Basket Shawl, and I knit it with Knit Pick's Palette in green tea heather.
