Rose of England

The Rose of England tablecloth is finally done. Well, done knitting, and then done binding off with the itty bitty crochet hook. It is pinned out with Not Enough Pins (see pictures); once I get more pins tomorrow, I'll finish pinning it and then block it.

It's a magnificent piece. I can say this without bragging, because I realize (especially as I was pinning it) - there is an amazing amount of artistry involved, and it's all Marianne Kinzel's (from the Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting). I provided patience, and some amount of competence - but I just followed the directions, and it is in the directions that all the beauty lives.
