Ooooooh - more very pretty lace from your needles - I'm not surprised you were a hit at Rhinebeck (oh how I wish I was in the same country and could go)and I rather suspect Dark Star will not just be a one-weekend wonder - what could with those lovely beads!!

There you are with another lovely lacey thing that just flew off your needles. I would bet your friends will be jealous and very envious. Have fun showing off.
