YEAH!! I finished it! I was asked by my LYS owner to do a lace shawl with Regia Bamboo sock yarn. It took me a while to do this (as I ripped it out about 7 times. It helped switching to pointier needles (Knit Pick's Options). This shawl has been in USA, Canada, Japan and Singapore... it's fairly well traveled. Still haven't decided whether or not to fringe it. The slip stitch edge looks pretty good though. It is about 7.5' across the top.
