Just finished MMario's Queen Annes Lace!!! Took me four months to makeit so im super excited to have it done!!! I used 3 skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Lace in the Cyan colorway and it turned out beautiful!!! I would so knit this pattern again although after this behemoth of a project I think im going to take a break from lace for a little while and knit a few pairs of socks! HAH! Here is a photo of the shawl blocking, darn near took up the entire room! I hope everyone had a good holiday and ate lots of yummy food!!!

It's beautiful!

Can't imagine doing something like that - but so excited to try!
Really... be proud. It's beautiful!

You chose a lovely colour and knitted it beautifully. The shawl is stupendous and it is such a great pattern. I have never seen one I didn't like. Who is the lucky recipient or are you going to use it??

Gorgeous color. Great knitting.

Question: Who is the recipient? Did you knit this for yourself? I have made 2 QALs, and I had so much fun that I want to make another, but I don't really have anyone that I can make one for. The women in my family just aren't shawl people.

If you have or know someone with connections to an "up-scale" charity auction - donate one...

I say "up-scale" because most local charity auctions don't get enough for a shawl to make the donation make sense...

Very lovely work. That shade of blue is fantastic. Enjoy the socks.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Excellent job! The QAL was a fun knit, and I've been meaning to do another too. I get sidetracked so easily though. Knitting does that. :-)

I saw this on RAV. You deserve all the nice things people are saying...it looks great.
