It needs a good spa....uh, blocking

My alpaca Flower Basket Shawl is finished. I used almost all of the 250g of yarn I had, I even thought of weighing it before the second last repeat to find out when to knit the edge. It worked out beautifully, I have only a little ball of yarn left over.


No, one can't see the lace pattern before blocking. If nothing else, this picture is proof.

wow. this is moving up on my list of things i want to knit...especially since i've never knit anything lace before. do you think this would be an okay beginner pattern?

Nice couch, too :-)

Pictures, please, when it's blocked...that's going to feel amazing in alpaca.

I feel so...laceless...the urge is getting to be overwhelming and I have Kidsilk Haze in my stash now....

It did work out beautifully! I love the color you chose--it will really highlight the lovely lace. Great job, Mona! :)
