This was my first big lace project and first time using blocking wires.  I'm ecstatically happy with how it turned out.  I've been saving this cashmere for a long time for something very special, so when my boyfriend and I decided to get married for our 10 year anniversary, I knew just which yarn to create with.  It is easy to work with and pretty much the softest thing I've ever touched.

I ended up using less than 2 skeins because I took out one pattern repeat thinking that I might run out of yarn.  I would hardily recommend this pattern for a first-time lace knitter.  I love this shawl so much that I just want to stare at it all the time!  It really made my wedding day even more special.

Thanks to Miriam for pattern help and fellow knitters for blocking advice!  Smiley

Pattern:  Seraphim by Miriam Felton found here: http://www.mimknits.com/
Yarn:  Lobster Pot Laceweight Cashmere
Needles:  US 6

More details to come on my blog!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!  Perfect shawl for a wedding.   (I don't know why, I just think so). 

I'm curious about the yarn--browsing around, it seems some people have found Lobster Pot lace cashmere a little fragile, that it breaks easily.  Is the shawl really delicate?

Thanks for sharing!
