Susan G. of Berlin, Germany has finished her Lyra, and what a beauty! She says, "My Lyra looks very nice once blocked, although I had real trouble blocking it. Even after pulling and ironing and using some starch, there are some places where my Lyra will not lie completely flat. The inner leaves circle is still a bit bumpy after blocking, and the corners of my square version are impossible to block out. Maybe if I pull the corners a bit more it might get better, but I'm not really in the mood so I will leave it for now." I think many of the Lyra knitters can understand about "being in the mood", as this pattern has caused some of us more than just a little consternation! The lighting on Susan's picture illustrates the various textures and stitches in the Lyra, which is one of the things we love about the Lyra. Absolutely lovely knitting, Susan. Posted by Picasa
