I guess now I can say I finished a real lace project with all kinds of lacy things involved, including provisional cast on, grafting in garter stitch and knitted on border.
Pattern: Estonian Lace Scarf http://entill.typepad.com/photos/klart06/estn_halsd.html
Yarn: Alpaca Coproca (fingering weight)
Needles: US5 (3.75mm)
Modifications: I knit only chart 1 and 2 from the pattern and added the knitted on border from the Cap Shawl in Victorian Lace Today.

I don't have a real camera, and the best I could do with the webcam was on black and white, so I added a little sepia and got a mix of old grandma pics and vintage porn, I guess.  Grin It's still way better than the webcam standard settings for the complete shawl view. There are more pics on my blog (http://colorlessblue.blogspot.com/2008/06/estonian-lace-stole.html).
Pics with stitch close-ups on older posts, too.

I think the black and white coloring to the picture actually adds a touch of class  Wink

But all I can say about the shawl itself is just...simply gorgeous. I -love- the bordering!

Thank you! I'm learning to love the border, because it wasn't my first option. But the one I chose first was too wide and I wouldn't have enough yarn...

Well, come to the dark side then. It's all just knits and purls and YOs, I promise.

whimsy10510, I guess I was thinking more of the other pic on the blog, this one here is pretty tame (the other one is too, but wouldn't be on my grandma's time). But don't ask me about the pics that _didn't_ get into the blog post.  Grin
