FO - Snowdrop Lace Shawl
I started this about a month ago, but I had to wait a week for new yarn to come in, so the whole thing took about 3 weeks to knit. It's made from KnitPicks Palette fingering weight, on #8 and 10.5 needles. It's about 6' (wingspan) and 3.5 feet long. It's for my grandmother, and she's extremely happy with it, as am I.

Here it is, pinned out for blocking.


Unpinned, and relaxing.



Detail



What do you think?

Thanks! It was a bit complicated at first, but the pattern is easy to memorize.
