i started this shawl in march of 2011 and it got worked on occasionally while i finished various other projects but i'm finally done! and OMG I ONLY HAD ABOUT 12 - 15 INCHES OF YARN LEFT OVER! although i had done my best to measure/estimate how much yarn i would be using toward the end of the project, i was so worried that i had calculated wrong so i was freaking out as i finished binding off, watching that tiny ball of yarn get tinier and tinier, but it worked out perfectly! \o/

i love the subtle variegated colors and it works out perfectly for this lacy design. you can see my project notes and more pictures here: (or you can click on the picture to visit flickr and see the pictures in full size). i plan on getting more pictures of it off of the blocking wires.

Beautiful pattern and gorgeous work!

I aim to try my hand at lace at some point, but that will be later once I have a few of the current projects completed and more time.

I'm binding off my version of that shawl as we speak. It's an awesome pattern.

Oh, that's lovely!

...I love when I finish with just inches of yarn. The worry followed by the relief. And the fact that you didn't waste anything! :)

Hooray! Congratulations! Gorgeous blocking, too.

I can't imagine the feeling of two feet of yarn left at the end of a shawl. I'm sure it would make my tension all weird at the end. :)

That's gorgeous!

I'm curious - what's that thing you block on?

Beautiful Shawl

That looks lovely and warm and I want to snuggle up in it while reading and/or go out on the town and show off stylishness. Congrats on the FO!
