My First Shawl

While I was out taking pictures of my Bobble Head Hat today I brought along the shawl I didn't finish for my Charms OWL last term. I've had it completed for a few months now and I just got around to taking the fancy FO pictures.

Here's a view of the blocking process (which was monumental in itself):

And here it is all finished:



Yarn: Alpaca with a Twist Fino in Royal Velvet
Mods: I went down a needle size to size 4.

I don't have a lot of commentary for this piece. It's the first big bit of lace I've ever done and it means a lot to me. I love this shawl from top to bottom, mistakes, frustrations and all.
