Terra
I just finished the Terra shawl (Jared Flood design), using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Amethyst Heather. I only did two repeats of the lace design, thinking that the shawl was growing too large. However, the shawl is ~68"x"26" (after blocking), so I think the size would have been fine with all three repeats. I'm sorry, but for some reason I can't get the photo to upload!

Beautiful shawl! It looks large enough to me even without the extra repeat, but of course, it's difficult to tell from a picture.

At any rate, well done!

Wow that's beautiful! I love the scalloped edge, is it all knit, or is the edge crocheted? Wonderful colour choice too.
