edited 2-25-13 to add links to yarn and pattern.

measures 40” across the straight edge, 53” if I include the lace edging. 20” deep. perfect for draping with the “center point” in the middle and the two ends wrapped around.

LOVE the yarn (wish it were part of the database so I could give it the 5 stars it deserves!) - the color is beautiful…just enough tonal variation to give it depth without distracting one bit from the piece. if I ever knit a sweater in laceweight, I’ll use this!

the pattern was very well-written (again, wish it were part of the database so I could give it 5 stars, too). I’d rate this a piece of cake for a laceweight lace project…and it would be a great first lace project - maybe in fingering weight?

8-25-12 - bound off last night, using the recommended size 9 needles AND jeni’s surprisingly stretchy bind-off. the edge is really loose and lacy. I think I’d use an 8 next time…just to see. blocked this morning using wires on the straight edge and one up the spine. then every single one of the straight pins I have around the curved edge. (oops, I forgot to take a photo!) hope to get photos tomorrow. I finally caved and used my fingers on all the “pass the 1st stitch over” (I picked up the stitch with my fingers and put it onto the tip of the right needle…got into a groove and improved my time knitting those lace rows from about 35 minutes to less than 20 :-)

8-22-12 - I know I said I’d never knit another triangular shawl, but I saw a sample…and in the laceweight, it’s stunning. so I bought the pattern and the yarn and started it! finished the stockinette section 8-20 (with one additional increase repeat = 249 stitches) and started the lace. through 5 repeats today.
