They say...

That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

I was almost done in by this project, but finish it I have.  I also have tendonitis in my right elbow courtesy of repetitive motion.  Though you cannot tell because it's not yet blocked, there are beads, Estonian nupps and miles of lace.  OK, I exaggerate...only around 1,300 yards or so.  I do believe I'm a stronger knitter because I stuck it out.  While Knitty calls this pattern "Piquant", I think it's really "Extra Spicy."  Your mileage may vary.

Pattern:  Aeolian
Yarn: Findley Dappled lace weight in Wisteria.  162 grams
Beads: Czech iridescent multi-blues size 8
Needles:  3.5mm Addi turbo lace

Hope you're all well and knitting your summer away!
