Queen Anne Lace Shawl Off Needles

Just finished knitting Mario's "Queen Anne Lace Shawl" pattern. It's right off the needles so I still have to block it. I started knitting with #8 US needles then switched to #9's around Row 40. Yarn = KnitPicks Palette (Blush). Love the pattern, Mario!

I love it! It looks like a LOT of work! I'm sure your recipient will be thrilled!

Wait until you see it blocked! it looks a *lot* more complicated then it actually is to knit (at least in my opinion).

I'm still amazed that the design actually gives you the double spiral effect that you see in the QAL flowers, or the seedheads of sunflowers.

Oh my gosh that's just beautiful! Excellent work!

I am attempting the "Faux Spanish Lace" (also thanks to MMario) with a leftover skein of black Cascade 220. I need to get more yarn though. I'll be sure to post a picture when I'm done with it.

It's beautiful now - I am keen to see it blocked in all its beauty!

Very very nice! Wow! Two thumbs up! I agree with Jesse - I'd love to see a picture of it blocked, too.

What a gorgeous piece of work. I hope you give us dimensions and amount of yarn, etc. when you publish your finished product. Congratualtions.

Thanks. I used about 1,500 yards of Palette yarn by KnitPicks. Palette yarns comes in 231 yard balls and I used about 6-1/2 balls. The unblocked shawl is about 50" across.

Great work Tom. Hope you can bring it next Tuesday, the 25th, to the Men's Knitting Circle in Philadelphia. The color is terrific.
