Bryce...Pretties for My Pretties

An English Garden in Red Rock Country


Doesn't she look quite marvelous against the red rock?  The shawl, sillly, not me! Of all the places in Utah where my finished knits have been photographed, no place is as amazing as Bryce. 


Hidcote felt like the wings of an angel as I stood on the edge of the canyon. She feels like angels breath on the skin.

Lace has only been part of my knitting repertoire for 3 years and Hidcote is by far the most complicated project to date.  Her finish gives me a true sense of accomplishment and I love wearing her delicate beauty.  Zephyr is so light and soft it can be worn year round and is perfect for too cool offices, movie theaters or restaurants.

WOW! Hidcote and Bryce are truly a match made in heaven and you should be proud of yourself it looks breath taking!

Beautiful! Well worth the wait!

Oh Wow Margene, she is BEAUTIFUL! Wow...that is just all I can muster :)


Yes, both of you.

Oh so breathtakingly beautiful!! You, silly - not Hidcote. hehe Well okay, Hidcote IS stunning. Congratulations on finishing such a challenging and rewarding project. I bow to your lace knitting greatness and again to Miriam for designing such a masterpiece. And I'm with the crowd - the last picture sums it all up perfectly. Thanks for such lovely photos! XOXOX

Utterly breathtaking. Both the shawl and the landscape. :-)

Your Hidcote is absolutely gorgeous - I think it's my favourite of Miriam's designs.

And there aren't strong enough adjectives to describe the magnificence of Bryce Canyon! I hope never to cease to be amazed by its splendour.

Stunning! Absolutely breathtaking .. just like the scenery.

Those are really beautiful portraits of both you and the shawl - suitable for framing! Congratulations on the accomplishment - you must feel great that you stuck it out!

Darling, you look marvelous.

What an amazing knit. You should be well proud girl!!!!
Did you get your hair cut or do you just have it different??? I like it whatever you did :)

I had a feeling that if I logged in today. I'd get to see Hidcote. :-) And oh, she was worth every stitch, wasn't she? (Even the ones you had to knit twice!)

And yes, I too think I spy a fab new summer 'do... ;-)

AWESOME and then some!! Nice job! Love the last photo best.

Hidcote is gorgeous.

Well done! The shawl is beautiful!


So lovely! Scenery, shawl, YOU! :)

Completely and totally fabulous!

It certainly is gauzy - no wonder it's called lace and worth all the work, I mean pleasure, that you put into it.

All three of you are stunning. Congrats, and please, no matter how much like wings that shawl feels, don't jump.

Oh Hidcote is amazing! Just beautiful and the location for your photo shoot was just as gorgeous.
