No I have not disappeared with the new year.  I have been working very hard in many things.  I am making this Evenstar Shawl as a wedding Veil for a gift.  It takes about 4 hours or so a day 4-6 days a week, whenever I have the chance.  I am using lifelines , I am learning a lot about myself.  I am learning a lot about how I knit and to pay attention as always to my work.  This is one of the most exciting projects I have made in my life.  I has a border with beads as well.  I am on Round 56 of 71 Rounds, this is on the Third Chart and thus the last Chart before the beaded border.  This pattern is exquisite and if you want a challenge, this will be a fantastic challenge.  I am making this pattern with 100 %  Aimsha Silk Lace yarn.
