Finished!

Isobel's Antique Lace 
I finished my Isobel's Antique Lace shawl over the weekend!  The edging wasn't any harder than the rest of the shawl and I didn't have to learn any new stitches after all.  I did the top edging a little differently than the pattern called for.  My version has smaller loops.

The yarn is Nerd Girl Yarns Winning in the colorway Different Sizes of Infinity.  I ended up using 1000 yards total for this shawl.  I used a 4.5mm hook for most of it, but switched to a 3.75mm hook for the picot row of the edging.  I then went down to a 3.5mm hook for the last row of the top edging.  Once it was finished and the ends woven in, I threw it in the washing machine and laid it out flat to dry to block it (the yarn says to use the washer and dryer both to clean it).  It grew quite a bit, so I'm thinking of washing it again and tossing it in the dryer to see if that snaps it back a little smaller.

I loved making this shawl and it went really quickly.  I also really enjoyed the yarn and will definitely use it again at some point!

That is beautiful. Almost makes me want to learn to crochet.
Almost.

That is lovely! I haven't done much with my crochet lately. You're being an inspiration, though! I'll have to go through my patterns and see what calls to me.
