I started this before my son was born and with his first birthday fast approthing I thought it was time to get my butt in gear and finish.  So here is is one finished flower basket shawl.



This was my first lace knitting project and I realize now that the yarn was too busy for the pattern but I love it anyway.

That is just stunning. You should be very proud of it! I don't think the yarn's too busy at all.

I actually think the yarn is perfect for the pattern. It'd look gorgeous with an all dark coloured shirt or dress!!

I'm in awe.  I have been too frightened to make stuff like that, but now you have given me some inspiration!  It's beautiful.
