Here it is. The Meadow Flowers Shawl from Knitter's Stash. The whole time I was knitting it, I doubted that the lace pattern would show up like I wanted. When I bought the yarn, I didn't pay close attention and ended up with a heavier mohair than I thought I was getting. However, blocking really works wonders. And, I am happy with the result. Using size 9 needles instead of the size 8 the pattern called for also turned out to be a good idea. My shawl is only slightly larger than the pattern's finished measurements. Not too big at all. Don't you just love it when things turn out better than you expected? This shawl will get some use on our trip to Colorado, where right now low temperatures are in the mid 50's. That's winter weather in our part of the country! Can't wait.
