Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today in Rowan Kidsilk Haze
Dear Rudee K. Smartypants,
It has come to our attention that you think you are capable of knitting lace that is spectacular. We grudgingly admit that you've blossomed a wee bit in the lace department, but we must point out that we don't think you've achieved all that much in terms of experience. Sure, you've mastered a simple little lace shawl pattern that even a two year old could memorize, but to contemplate the likes of an 1840 Victorian lace pattern proves that you've lost your mind completely. With all due respect, we recommend you set aside that Victorian Lace Today book you bought 2 years ago, stop looking at Rowan Kidsilk Haze, and get back to knitting simple items that are more in line with your skill level. You may want to start by finishing that idiot proof pi shawl you began a month ago. We understand the reason you picked this book off your shelf in the first place this week, was to scout out a border for your shawl. One thing led to another and you
began to dream became delusional. It happens all of the time. Now, why don't you go knit a nice pair of vanilla flavored socks and leave the real knitting to the big girls?
