Beautiful! what are the finished dimensions? (I wonder because some people have said it is really a shawlette rather then a full sized shawl.)

MMario - Can anybody tell me what year it is?

the pattern calls for lace weight yarn and does make a shawlette. since this was my first attempt at lace, i went for something closer to fingering weight. the result was a moderate sized shawl.

Is it my imagination or is there no photo? Did it disappear?
