Well, this is a tablecloth, but I would like to do a shawl version in some red Zephyr to keep myself.

Holy spinal cats! My jaw hit the floor. That's incredible!

As for using patterns in classes, in the case of this Kitty pattern, there is no problem. First, there is no payment involved, so the class could be considered a KAL. Second, every student has to download their own pattern. If I purchased a pattern and made copies for the class, that is clearly a copyright violation.

Your ROE is beautiful. I don't like the edging for the dinner cloth. I wonder if there is a way of making it as the edging in the tea cloth.....
