So here's just a few quick pictures (with my crappy built in webcam) of my QAL shawl as soon as it came off the needles. It is roughly 54 inches in diameter...we'll see what size it ends up after blocking. I can't decide how often to pull it into points, as I've seen some others do just the diamond mesh, and others do the design in between the diamond mesh as well. Thoughts?
As far as I can gues-timate, I used approximately 1000 yards of Cascade Alpaca Lace yarn, with the bulk of the knitting (like, everything after round 40) on size 8 needles.
