After 14 months I've finished the Wedding Peacock wedding veil design from MMario. The final count was 139,518 stitches, 4,725 crystal beads (3mm), approximately 2,200 yards of 60/2 silk on a US size 3 needle.
My daughter(Alaina) stopped by our house last night after work and tried it on. Even without a wedding dress it looked stunning. Simply dry, laying out it is 86" in
THANKS MMARIO it will be wonderful. Alaina is already saying that she will wear
it as a shawl during the wedding reception and then will have it stretched to
hang on her wall. (And there's only someone who, reading between the lines, has
sort of called her his girlfriend - so it will be a while.)
Don't look too carefully as there are some errors that are visible, but
over a wedding dress they'll never be seen!
I've also posted more pictures in Ravelry:
