I am so pleased with it. Just at the very top, you see the small open work triangles that make up the inner lace edging. You get a feel for the gloriously deep mid-lace edging, and you can see exactly how much I did of the outer lace edging. A stunning design.
Without really pinning it out, without opening up any of the lace properly (all I really did was pin it flat), the lace edging is well over a foot wide. It took up about 2/3 of the square tile. According to the pattern, the lace edging should be about 22 inches deep, and I have absolutely no doubt that it will be.
This is going to be a big shawl.
There is that word again. BIG. Spring 2011. The season of big.
