All done, it just needs blocking. I could have made the stocking stitch section longer. I forgot to weight my yarn before I started the lace :( After 3 repeats of the lace pattern (24 rows) I had 36g left, so I kept on going. I had 25g after 32 rows so did 5th repeat. I had 12g left after 40 rows. After the 3 knit rows I had 8g left to cast off with.

Unblocked, my shawl measure 52” x 19. I’d gone down a needle size as my tension tends to be a little loose and I often run out of yarn 3 rows from the end! I could have used the 3.5mm and still probably had enough to one more lace repeat.

I’m very happy with it as it is. It drapes beautifully and the colours look fabulous. I hope to block it tomorrow and take some photos.

I’ve pinned my shawl out and it measures 58” x 23”. It felt like it would comfortably gone wider, but I used the neat selvedge (yarn in front and slip last stitch purl wise) and there doesn’t seem to be much stretch in it.

The yarn feels fabulous. So soft and silky - I can’t wait to wear this!
