I haven't knitted it but I see you haven't gotten any responses so far. I spend a lot of time on lace knitting lists and I can tell you that it seems to be fairly popular as a project for new lace knitters.

The only problems that I have seen discussed have to do with the fact that if you use stitch markers between repeats there are some places where you have to move them around. Some people solve this problem by just not using stitch markers between the repeats. I have used other Fiddlesticks patterns and on the whole they tend to be very clear and thorough.

I made the Peacock feathers shawl last year. It was fairly simple, but required a lot of attention...like all large lace projects do. It was my first knit lace shawl & my second knit lace project (first was knitty's branching out). You can see a pic of mine HERE

2nd: Jax that's beautiful. What yarn did you use?

3rd: Where'd you guys get the pattern?

nadja- thank you! I used JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool Silk in Charcoal. it's a 50% merino wool, 50% silk blend. VERRY yummy, soft and wonderful yarn. It's my favorite laceweight yarn. It has wonderful drape and a beautiful sheen to it. I bought the pattern HERE

Jasmine I'm so sorry about your DH's God-mother. Cancer takes such a terrible toll on a family. So many people in my life have been stricken with it (my DGF, DF, DA and now my DH) My thoughts are with you, your DH and his GM.

Jax, thanks for the link All those wonderful patterns. They make it very hard to decide.
