Lelah, Amelia & Rio

I have finally made a garment that I LOVE! Boozehags, your genuis! Lelah is a sensation and flatters any body type; with my own modifications.....
I finshed it this morning and have not blocked it or put a ribbon in the eyelet row. I couldn't wait to share my triumph with you so here are sneak peeks to the unveling:




Let me intoduce Amelia!
It's one of my charted lace patterns. Its made from 100% cashmere and oh sooooo soft! Mama Llama has 6 patterns coming out before the end of the year and all use Mama Llama Yarns. 3 will be free, and 3 will be for sale :)


I'm going to Rio! My sister purchased my palne ticket this morning..... Now I have to stand in line ALL DAY on Monday to get a passport in time.... I leave Oct. 28th....

Lelah is gorgeous, Catherine! The shaping really "makes" it! Congratulations! (Love Amelia, too-- did you dye the cashmere? Beautiful!-- Can't wait to be able to purchase the patterns!)

When you go to get your passport, try the courthouse in Richmond. The wait there can be long, but they're usually pretty fast-- and you wait in the open foyer, which isn't too bad-- just take some knitting with you, and it'll be fine! (They don't take the pictures there, but you can get them from Walgreens or CVS pretty quickly!) I expedited mine and got it before 3 weeks were up! I enjoyed your link to Carmen's blog, and can't wait to "hear" about your trip!

Lelah looks great on you. Perfect for the warmer weather, too.

I love the color of yarn you used on Amelia, too.

Lelah looks stunning on you! I made the strapless version last year [in black silk]. :)

Love the lace and am SO glad you have a garment you love! We need to talk yarn & patterns : )

I'll give you a tip on the passport if you haven't already done it.
