FINISHED!!!



Well, I still have to block it. The problem there lies in where to block it. It is almost 6 feet across and will be even bigger once wet! I can't wait to see it all nicely blocked.
I am really happy with how it turned out. I expected major problems wtih this being my first lace project, but it knitted up really easily. It is a spectacular pattern. It took me just over 2 months, and for me I think that is extremely fast. Once I got started it was all I wanted to do and now I am stuck wanting more!
I will post some better photos of it once it is blocked!

Even though I understand the incredible difference between unblocked and blocked, I think it's so beautiful! I'm speechless, really (cause 'beautiful' just doesn't seem fitting). I'm so jealous, I want to make one for myself :) I love the color too!

Thanks everyone :-)
Leah, blocking is when you get it wet and gently stretch it to the proper dimensions. With any project it can make a big difference (especially if you are using wool, I think), but I think with lace it can make a huge difference. At least, it has in the projects I have seen.
