Spider Web Shawl from Victorian Lace Today
Half Hexagon size-  about 900 yards
Yarn- Helen's Lace in "watercolors"
Needles- size 6
Notes- This shawl was a pretty easy knit, I got pretty bored with the pattern repeats in the end, but it blocked out much better than I expected it to.

I actually thought it was pretty ugly</a> before it was blocked.

That's beautiful!

I'm in love with the full hex version myself. I don't think there's a pattern in the book that I don't want to knit!
