Beautiful! I absolutely love your doilies, even tho I have sworn them off in my home :p I'm with Tom, I think this would look fantastic done in fingering weight on size 8's.

So...when you say two

So...when you say two weeks....like how many hours? I gotta figure out how to do something like this. I assume you use DPN's? Of course, I have no clue!

Great work. And a nice color. Can't wait to see it blocked. I wonder what it would look like knit with #10 US or #11 US needles. Or using fingering weight yarn with those #8's. Bet would would have a wonderful lacey look. Hmmmm .... maybe an idea for the basis of a shawl.

If I recall - It makes a good shawl on 10's with a light yarn. I did extend it a bit - believe I continued the spiral until so there were three repeats of the outer motif for every two in the original.

Is there any shawl you

Is there any shawl you haven't knit? You are truly an inspiration. How many shawls have you knit so far? Do you have a picture of the shawl you knit based on the spiral doily pattern? And what do you do with all your shawls? I can imagine our house being filled with shawls being stashed here and there in the future ... and I don't have that many sisters!

five sisters, seven nieces, three s-i-l's; and seven great nieces now....plus I give them as birthing gifts, wedding gifts, and to friends for various reasons; then there are the ones auctioned off for various charities, and the "comfort shawls" for illness and or bereavement ;

I actually buy the occasional shawl because I can't keep up!
I've lost cound of how many I've done - but I know I have shawls in Scotland, England, Ireland, Germany, Guam, Japan, Hawaii, and many places in the US - several in Cananda. There may be a couple in Australia - I'm pretty sure at least one ended up there.
