From Susan — Lyra Wrap up

Filed under: Lyra by Niebling — lv2knit @ 6:25 pm

Thanks, all, for the wonderful and supportive comments.  It is very much appreciated from this end.


A couple of answers to a couple of questions:

#1 — What yarn did you use?
I used Fino Alpaca with a Twist (875 yds/100gm) – I have a lot left over of the second skein and used US #1 (2.5 mm) Lace Addi needles.

 #2 — Will you sell or rent out the pattern?
Sorry, no!  It was part of the hunt, and I may make this lil pup again some day.

Thank you all and it’s on to the next…


  1. Your Lyra is incredibly beautiful. I’m awestruck.

  2. If I can ever have something so beautiful, symmetrical, crisp and lovely to put on my table, I will die a happy woman.

  3. I mean, of course, something that I made, without chemical assistance!

  4. Well, I hadn’t been to your site for a few days and then I do pop in and see this! I too coveted Soo’s Lyra but that is where it will stay. Coveted. There is no point in even trying to locate the pattern – total waste of time. Exquisite.

  8. My mouth is hanging wide open. That is the most beautiful thing I have seen in a very long time. It nearly brought tears to my eyes. Absolutely unbelieveable.

  9. Susan- It’s incredible. You’ll have to bequeath it in your will.

    So, what’s next?

  13. Wow, talk about gorgeous! Lace inspires me too and yet I never seem to make any. Good for you!
