I finally finished the wedding shawl!!!

And just in time, too. I decided to give it to her at her bridal shower instead of the wedding. The shower is this Saturday!!

There are a couple of "mistakes" (read: holes) that I will fix after it is completely dried from blocking.

It was a love/hate relationship. I really enjoyed the majority of it, but there were tears, aha-moments, and times where I was simply sick of looking at it.

It took me a little over a month, but I learned soooo much doing it. I’ve become much more proficient and quicker since starting it.

Remember kids, this is the first lace, first pattern project, first non-round item on circular needles, first multi-skein project, first blocking project, and first true multi-type of stitch project. Whew!!

Would I do it again? Hell yes!!

(The photos are pre-blocked and during blocking. I will have finished pics tomorrow.)

Thanks. I definitely want to

Thanks. I definitely want to do more lace. Maybe some smaller, shorter projects. And not for a little while yet...lol.
I'm tackling a huge afghan project with a pattern of my own making at the moment. I have to have it done by the end of August. I think I'll make it.

Sorry, my internet's been down all day again and just came up. We are still suffering major after-effects of that horrendous storm that rolled through the midwest. Thanks, ronhuber, for posting the pattern.
