A Fire-ry Oriental Dragon with double happiness symbols in the border. He has a ring lace background (He insisted on ring lace and it's not wise to argue with a dragon). The border is knit at the same time as the dragon so when you are done-you are done! The pattern is all charted. I used almost exactly 2 skeins of Fino, approximately 1770 yards.

I have been knitting for more years than I care to count but I had never knit lace. In '98 I spun some fine, black alpaca yarn that just begged to be lace so I designed a shawl and, as they say, the rest is history. Lace has become my passion and the Crazy Lace Lady was born. I am a lover of dragons and other mythical beasts. In a what-if moment, I decided to see if I could knit a dragon in lace. Heere Be Dragone evolved from my needles to become the first of many of the very unique 'Picture Lace' shawls. I get to spend most of my day (and sometimes the middle of the night) designing, knitting and teaching lace. Knitting has led to wonderful friends and the satisfaction of creating beautiful things. Your success if important to me.
