Cobwebs in corners




Here is the blocking goodness of my finished Cobweb shawl! This is my first lace project and it was really enjoyable. the lace pattern was easy to memorize and the only snag I ran into was running out of yarn 1/3 of the way into the edging and having to frog it all back very carefully so the whole thing wouldn't unravel at my feet. (The lace edging is worked perpendicular to the shawl in short rows adding one stitch of the body in every other row) I used the alternate crocheted edging and then the single crocheted finish on the straight edge of the shawl and I really like how it turned out. The bamboo worked up beautifully and was perfect for this project. All in all, an extremely satisfying experience! Lace and I, we will be fast friends from now on!

Wow! This came out beautiful!
I've always wanted o make something like this - but have no idea if I'd actually like to wear it. What will you wear with yours?
