Hmmm. My first comment vaporized? Anyhow, this is real pretty and looks like it requires thinking!
I love that pattern! Very pretty.
Welcome back to knitting. You really have been busy on other pursuits the last month, but now you can kick back and relax a bit. Enjoy!
It is so lovely. Breaks from lace are necessary for me too! Im starting a lace shawl today. If I do well it will only be the 3rd lace I've ever knit. WISH me luck
