The Shiny Side

There's really no knitting to show from yesterday - it was a long and painful day at the office, trying to keep up the usual earnest and perky pep talks in a hoarse croak - you CAN quit smoking, you CAN eat real food, exercise WILL make you feel better than expensive herbal stimulants, honest.

So, I thought I would post a shot of the other (shinier) side of my fibre addiction - that is to say, knitting with silver. This is a simple lace pattern - some of them are more technically feasible than others, but they do look quite lovely in the ultra-fine gauge fine silver. I crocheted pearls around the edge which gives it a nice Victorian air and also makes it considerably sturdier.
