I absolutely loved knitting Bonnie. Well, with the exception of what felt like very real stockinette hell when I was about 80 rows in. Note to self: buy a yarn counter before your next lace weight project. Counting over 100 rows at such a fine gauge was not my finest hour, but the result is lovely.
I've had this skein of Madeline Tosh Lace kicking around the stash for almost two years. I bought it at Webs on our honeymoon and it has been waiting for the perfect project. It was originally intended to be a Nevis cardigan, but that was just not working. So it sat, in its cake, waiting for love. And then along came Tin Can Knits.

I'm really glad I chose to take this with me to Into the Wool. All the fun and conversation helped me to power through those long stockinette rows before I finally got to start the chart. And now when I wear it I have two sets of happy memories -- the memory of Chris laughing when I realized he'd worked freaking Webs into our honeymoon and the memory of laughter that can only come when knitters spend days huddled together for warmth.
