AHHH! My first go at a 'real' lace project!! :o)
Cast on last night and finished the stockinette portion. Thanks to the new Options needles making a lifeline was super easy (also thanks to the board for suggesting it!). My camera doesn't really do the yarn justice - it's Dream In Color Starry, Go Go Green... very nice shades of green with silver.

(Hopefully those are the correct size - I put 800 pixels in the editor thingy... if they're too large just lemme know ;o)

All finished and blocked!

It grew about 10.5 inches during blocking... I <3 it.

It's really lookin' great so far, Evan! I love :heart: that soft little white satiny thread that's inside the twist of the yarn! It really punches up the colorway! Like a bit of a twinkle! This is going to be a beaut! :thumbsup:

Almost done... all bound off, just needs to be blocked tomorrow (my LYS is going to help me and let me use the fancy steam blocker!!!) :o)
I used some Christmas ornaments to pull the points down so I could get a better feel for what it'll look like... I'm hoping to block them to look much 'sharper' though!
I'm so excited!!!!!

I haven't really decided what to do with it yet... I put a LOT of work into it and can't really think of anyone that would wear it :o/ For now I'll probably hang it on the part of the mantle without Christmas decorations.
