Hurrah! My first lace-weight shawl is finished! Looking forward to summer nights sitting on the porch, ice tea with lemon slice in hand, wearing this gorgeous shawl instead of working on it :)
Wish I had a more glamorous backdrop than my garage door to photograph it against, but you work with what you have. I had a deadline to get a picture of this posted for an online class and this was the only place with bright enough, indirect light at photography time.
I do admit to not being thrilled with this while working on it, but its nature changed completely upon severe blocking and it morphed into quite a beautiful shawl. Very instructive project on the nature of lace weight yarn in garments.
Going out for a celebratory lunch today to mark the successful completion of this big project. There are more than 1300 yds of spider-silk thin yarn in this!!! I will, of course, be wearing my new shawl to lunch.
Here's the link to a prior post on this shawl if you're interested in making one of your own.
