My first Lace shawl is done!

This was a find while looking at blogs , the pattern is called Bottom up Birch . Looking back I had started it on Saturday February the 19 and just finished it yesterday. Since this was my first I was very lucky to be a member of a group called Knitting Delight. The Ladies where awesome sharing their secrets on how to block and what to use and I will need to invest in a few more supplies for my new found hobby.

The width on the top is 90 inches, it is light as a feather.

I `m in love with Lace knitting, after I failed at my first attempt last year I decided to try it again and using smaller needles made all the difference. No big holes as before but it took a little to get use to the thin yarn. All this time invested was time well spent, I love my shawl.
