Wow! It is gorgeous! I saw the stole On Lee Ann's blog, but your pictures really show the color and details very clearly.

I am truly in awe of your work.


Oh my, BEAUTIFUL! I love all the details your photos show, great job!


Ted, it's simply brilliant -- I am afraid you ARE a designer, whether you like to admit it or not. Congratulations.


Quite nice, talk about an understatement! It's beautiful. Congratulations.


That is so stunning, Ted, what a lucky Lee Ann. I have some Zephyr in Cinnabar, but I know that it's not going to look as good as that when I get round to doing something with it.


The lady is justifiably speechless. Magnificent planning and stitching.


Ted -
Very, very impressive. Far beyond many of the patterns that I see for sale. My hat's off to you!


My compliments - it's beautiful!

Lee Ann

In addition to being speechless, I'm now awestruck.

I can't wear this while I work. I just sit and stare at it. :-)


Oh my. That is superspectacular! It's one of the most beautiful renditions of Shetland lace I have ever seen. Sell the pattern?

Jeez, you're good!


Wow! That's totally gorgeous! A year well spent!

'quite nice' may be the understatement of the year when applied to this piece of wearable art.


That shawl on LeeAnn is one of the most stunning pieces of knitting I think I have ever laid eyes on. Well done!

Ted, I beg to disagree - LeeAnn's photos are wonderful, but yours add an entirely new dimension to the scope and thought that went into this piece. It's truly lovely.


That's really beautiful!


This piece goes beyond designing right into the realm of art. Very tricksy...


Really lovely work, Ted. Thanks for the links to the Shetland museum textiles online.


It is Positively Georgeous dear. I would love to see a pattern for that. I would even buy it and pretend I can do that.

Oh WOW! I came across your blog via Knitty as I was looking for a pattern for some socks for my husband and I'm so glad I did. I have rarely seen such beautiful lace work, you're such a talented guy! The pattern really does resonate of something quite old and the colour of the yarn is beautiful. Wow and double wow!


It's incredibly awesome! I am struggling with Spider Queen now and was just wondering how someone go about designing these things. And here you are, designed and knitted an absolute masterpiece. Fantastic! Lucky gal that Lee Ann.


>>There was considerable knitting and ripping. With me and knitting, all too frequently there’s a mismatch between what I see in my mind’s eye and what I end up with in my hands. It’s frustrating, and why I shy away from designing. <<

This happens to every designer. It's so hard to get the mind to tell the hands what to do! It's as frustrating as getting the computer to do what we want it to do, rather than what we told it to do.

It's beautiful, Ted. No one but you could have created it.


Wow, that is a beautiful stole. I'm jealous of your work.




Wow, that is marvelous.
