MMario's wedding peacock

I finished this yesterday... seems to be the "summer of lace..."
What a great pattern!
I altered it from the original full circle, adding a garter stitch border, and given my crappy eyes did it with sock weight yarn on 10s.
The only problem was when I realized it was going to be WAY too big. I figured I'd just finish it off after the third chart, and sent MMario a message asking him for advice on how to finish it. Well, the wonderful man went WAY beyond the call, and altered the chart for me that it would have the same beautiful fan at the edge.


and BTW, how lucky am I to have a man who reminds me to stop and buy more yarn!? :)

I've got a lot of K/P's to get to something like that. Not to mention I have to remind myself to buy more yarn. But that usually means that I walk out of the store with more yarn and them new yarn for a project I noticed in a book when in the store.

Thanks for the inspiration to step it up a notch!

Have a great holiday weekend.

Beautiful work Eric! It's a perfectly stunning example of the fact that lace really doesn't need to be done on tiny needles.

Oh, and isn't MMario just the best?

I've been on a hiatus from my Spanish Armanda for far too long and all this wonderful MMario design eye candy is giving me the itch to get back into it.

Beautiful looking shawl Eric

Beautiful looking shawl Eric and a great design from MMario. What size needles did you use? I prefer half circle shawls to full circle probably because I am a slow knitter and would be happy to know when the revised pattern is available. I'm in the yahoo group.

You can easily work the half circle with the current pattern - the revision was due to using the larger needles and yarn.

And my designs are NADA unless someone converts them to reality - which you have done brilliantly.
