My Knitted Veil is finished

22807cI just finished blocking this last night. I wasn't sure about having to follow two sections of a chart, but it wasn't so bad--thanks to the magnetic strips marking my spot. I was worried about stopping at any point in this shawl. I had to be very careful how and where I set this down. There was patterning on every row. I was worried about the size of the shawl. I followed the pattern, but used thinner yarn and smaller needles. The shawl was small before blocking, but grew a lot. There are more pictures on my blog.

Here are the details...
Pattern: A Knitted Veil from Victorian Lace Today
Yarn: Hengyuanxiang (2 balls)--This is a laceweight, superwash wool yarn from Shanghai.
Needles: size 2 Knitpicks classic circular
Unblocked: 21" x 57"
Blocked: 31" x 77"
Started: 2/15/07
Finished: 2/27/07
