I finally got around to photographing my Ravelympics project.
It's been a while since I've had a good contribution to this board and I hope this makes the cut.
This is my first lace shawl and I'm already thinking of the next one.





I used Alpaca with a Twist - Fino for my yarn choice.
It's a silky alpaca dream to work with.. always smooth and consistent in texture.
Here is the stitch for the macro detail loving.



and the final results!






I won't bother you all with my ravings on this project, but I loved the heck out of it.
Great pattern that I would reccomend for any newbie lacer.
