B-day-Joy and La Sarita ...

First of all I would like to thank all my dear friends 
for the B-day wishes yesterday on Ravelry and on Facebook.
You have made my day brighter and cheerier ;-)


Second I would like to introduce

Pattern La Sarita by Janet Weston

:  Finished
:  September 2 2012
:  September 5 2012
 Needle and yarn
  US 6 - 4.0 mm
anabelcolori "zauberhand"
1 skeins = 437.4 yards (400.0m) 
A wonderful pattern and a great knit! 
Never get's boring, because the bottom-up architecture let's you make the lacey 
(and longish .... more than 400 sts to cast on) part first 
and then you get to learn a "new" estonian stitch and after that you just do short rows.
The I-cord bind-off is perfect for this project :-D
Ahem ... yes ... BEADS were optional ... 
so I didn't do them ( I am not quite the "beader" ...LOL)

With this project I also tried something I saw the other day in the projects of a fellow Raveler:
Folded blocking (<-- that's what I shall call it) ... 
you fold your shawl in half and block it with blocking wires and pins ... 
yes, you get a middle fold ....BUT the shawl turns absolutely symmetrical and it uses less blocking space ;-)
