Happy St. Patrick's Day from a girl that has mostly Irish blood running through her veins.

Also I just finished knitting this shawl. Back a few years ago when I was mentally sick my daughter Michelle bought this yarn for me for my birthday. The intent was to use it to make a shawl named Mystic Light designed by Anna Dalvi. With my sickness I lost interest in just about everything including my knitting. So the project got shelved for some years. Last month I got the pattern out and the yarn and got the shawl knitted up finally. Here are some pictures of it.

Absolutely gorgeous! - and I like the way you say casually, that you "knitted it up"- it would take me weeks and weeks and weeks.I have decided that Lace Knitting is definitely not for me! My Aeolian , satrted over 2 years ago, is now a UFO, having transitioned last year from being a WIP.

That's very pretty! The pattern shows up nicely in the pic with the light streaming through it. Like wings!

What a wonderful triumph for you! This is just gorgeous! I tried a lot of things in knitting, but lace knitting with 'finer' yarns and the overwhelming number of stitches plus the fear of losing stitches was too much for me! I love to knit Aran sweaters, however.

I remember reading your saga, and I cannot watch the commercials for that product without thinking of you. Absolutely scary!

Happy St. Patrick's day from someone who's 1/4 Irish and named after her Flanagan grandmother!
