My 'Steampunk' Shawl

Finally, It's finished!

Lady's Circular Shawl in Shell Pattern by Jane Sowerby, from Victorian Lace Today
The yarn is Kauni Lace ~ XEMC and it was ordered from Tausendschon Beautiful to work with and you can spit-splice the ends together so easily which save on weaving in later. (I really detest weaving in later and will do anything possible to avoid it)

This was my first shawl that required a knit on border. The damn border took longer to knit then the entire body! I picked this up and put it down so many times over 9 months because I found it so monotonous. Now that it's finished I think it looks lovely but for a while I didn't think I'd ever reach the end. LOL

I'm showing off here :-) Originally, I planned to get all dressed up in something a tad more Victorian. But, waiting for that I might never have gotten the pictures taken. I rather like the way it looks with jeans.

I can't take credit for knitting this piece of lovliness.....just teaching my daughter how to knit.
Just stunning Corinne. I have to knit this. The impact is 50% pattern and 50% yarn.

Thank you everyone! I've very happy with how it turned out. I already have my eye on a new lace project...or I could finished one of the two unfinished shawls I have on needles.
I'll cast on the new one tomorrow LOL
