Thanks everyone for the

Thanks everyone for the comments .

No - I don't wear shawls - my problem is usually staying cool enough, not warmth! I have used them as lap robes or afghans on rare occasions.

Well you have done it again.

Well you have done it again. We all can't believe that you can top what you have done and then you do it. It is so beautiful. BTW do you use a shawl yourself? I am always curious as to how many men use one. Truman Capote, in one one of his movies, mentions that he has shawls. I have seen paintings of men - usually old ones- with a shawl around their shoulders.

guys, don't you hate it when someone posts something like this and then goes to another post and says that they don't consider themselves all that talented? ;)

It is awesome, I love how it looks.

You guys should see it in

You guys should see it in person! It looks alive it's so light. I got to be a witness at Knitch this weekend. Still pictures don't do something like that justice, sometimes....

Beautiful as usual! You are going to post pictures once it is blocked, aren't you? We didn't get much of the ice storm so I am at work, working hard!

I didn't expect to be off

I didn't expect to be off work today - but 45 minutes into a two hour delay they called work off and closed the building. Ice Day!

An Ice Day for me is the day

An Ice Day for me is the day I decide to stuff myself with the good stuff - chocolate ice, or pistachio, or rum and raisin or a combo of other good flavas.

Like chiffon! What needle

Like chiffon! What needle size? What yarn? What's your guess of blocked diameter?

The body of the shawl is one

The body of the shawl is one skein (1460 yards) of Prism lace-weight wool. The edge is KidSilk Spray, just barely over 1 skein - (more then 220 yards, but less then 300) - so total yardage is under 1800.
Size US 6 needles (4mm)

blocking as I type - since I have an "Ice day" from work today.
