Zsazsa

In high-school I was the rebel student and she was the rebel teacher, so we took to each other, even though I hardly had any classes with her. What she thaught us however, stuck, so much that over the last couple of years, I did used many things she hammered into our heads about literature. In fact, that she is now teaching in there was one of the deciding factors which university I finally applied for.
Though we hardly met for 25 years, we picked up easily where we left off, and when she mentioned that she would like to have something knitted, something light and lacy with beads, I thought, why not.
Now, if you know me, you would also know that I am a rather selfish knitter. I hardly knit for others, only in very special cases. But she is very special, and a lacy top is not that big of a thing, right? (Do NOT mention lace shawls for her!)
I sent her pictures of dozens of lacy sleeveless tops, then searched the every corner of the net for just the right yarn, then looking for the perfect beads, and set about knitting. And then presented it. And she could not wait to try it on. And it fit perfectly. And the smile on her face made it all worthwhile.
Pattern: Leafy Glen Shell
Yarn: Ice yarns, Silk, . I used about 60-70 gramms (only a little bit more than 2 balls, each ball is 25 gramms, Now this piece is LIGHT).
Beads: Toho 6 (from Igazgyöngy)
I was not prepared to take picture, didn't took a camera with me. But Larisa Kocic shot a couple with her phone)

How nice that you have become reacquainted with a favourite teacher! The lacy top is so very pretty. I love the picture of the two of you together. You both look so happy!
