This project is difficult to get a photo Grin I don't have a space large enough to spread it out, or a circular table to use. This shawl/tablecloth/thing is 56" across.

This is a pattern by Herbert Neibling called Lyra. I used ~2,500 yards of Lacis Shetland Cobweb. It was frighteningly thin in places but it held up to a pretty firm blocking. I had to block half the shawl at a time because I didn't have enough pins and finished somewhere around 2 in the morning!  Cheesy

blocking on a busy area rug (1st half!)



Some detail shots:







And an action shot.

Gorgeous...and beautiful work...blocking makes the biggest difference in lace--what a job on such a large piece!

You should be so proud of this...the action shot speaks for you!

Suzanne - It's surprisingly warm while still being feather-light. It's a Shetland wool, which isn't known for being soft, but spun this fine (and myself having little itchiness towards Shetland anyway) it's very nice against the skin.

I'm blown away by how beautiful this is! I'm amazed that someone is able to make things like this with her own hands. Absolutely impressive!

rottenlittleboys  - I started it in June but put it down for a couple of months because it got too crazy busy... I'd say I probably put it down for 6 months? I finished it in time for Easter.
