The green blog isn't a blob

As you are knitting lace it's not impressive. My family looks at the picture, looks at what's on my needles, and wonders what I've been drinking that makes me think the blob on my needles will look anything like the picture. That is until they see this on the floor. (my blocking assistant Joey making sure no one walks on the shawl).
Then I moved the cat (that's the hard part) unpinned and realized that I'm the only one home. So here is a chair on the front porch modeling my new shawl.
I'll wear it tomorrow to my neice's wedding. Since I'm wearing black slacks and a white shirt this will be the only thing separating me from the waitstaff. lol.

***The yarn is Knitpicks gossamer which was really nice to work with and blocked beautifully. The pattern is also thru knitpicks. The charting is easy to follow and looks great once it's done.

The shawl is lovely and the color is so pretty! What yarn did you use? Nice assistant, by the way. I have 3 similar helpers around here! :)

Beautiful! You used the Knit Picks Shimmer for that shawl, right?

It really is like magic when you finish the blocking and stand back and say WOW...at the finished project.

I am sure you received lots of compliments on your beautiful shawl!

Gorgeous!!! I always worry that the cat's nails will snag the finished lacy project, but I see more assistant cats so I guess it's ok. I cant wait to see you wearing it. Make sure to post pictures of you at the wedding. And bride pictures are always nice too!
