I saw this on your blog, too.  Looks great! 

Is that the same spider pattern that Wendy Knits Wendy is working on?  It looks similar to my untrained-lace-eye.

might be, the spider pattern has been around for ages and this is my interp of it (i didnt figure out what i was doing was called spider actually until after i started working the lace and was browsing the internet!)

Ah, I see.  So 'spider lace' is a general design, not the name of a particular shawl pattern - like the way cables have names.  That makes sense.

Beautiful!!!!!  Love the look of lace but I fear it like spiders, Ben Affleck movies, rattlesnakes and the IRS!!!!  Maybe there is a group for people like me......so we can overcome our fear and make gorgeous shawls too!

You have terrific taste in fears! Lace is really surprisingly easy; I highly recommend it. Remember how when you started knitting you thought cables were insane too? If you can knit, purl, increase and decrease you can do lace . . . promise!

This is so beautiful.  I like the panel at the top - it reminds me of webs.  Did you design this yourself?  I'm so impressed!

Very nice!

I've recently gotten into knitting lace patterns myself, or at least wanting to. I know I'm capable of more than the simple designs I'm putting out now, but the lack of availability of natural fibres in this city kinda limits my progress. All I have to work with here are balls of crochet cotton, and that, while at least workable, isn't quite what I had in mind.
