I finished it. If I wasn't making it for my mom I would have never finished it. It was great travel knitting. It went with me to Austria, Germany, Italy, Yellowstone for New Years, and lots and lots of meetings at work.

The pattern is the Shoulder Shawl out of Victorian Lace Today. I used Shimmer Lace Weight Yarn in Sherry .

It has several errors. I had to fix no less than 5 dropped stitches once it was done. Luckily the hand dyed color hides errors and Alison helped me block it which really brought out its beauty.

I'm happy I finished it, but I can't promise you'll ever see me work with lace weight yarn again. I'm the one that likes to double strand WOTA Bulky. Now where did I leave that Twinkle book and my size 17 needles...

At least you cought your dropped stitches. They didn't catch the one in their picture in the book. You can see it starting to run. I enjoyed this pattern too. It was definately good for traveling. Good job!

MarciH, I think it looks wonderful... of course I can't see it close up... Problem is I have a lace shawl in my future... I've had the yarn forever, and really want to add lace to my list of accomplishments. I've made several shawls using bulkier yarns and huge needles - they were all well received. In fact, I just bought a book with a lace shawl pattern and really want to get started. Maybe your accomplishment will spur me on. Good work! --S
