FO Friday: Queen Anne’s Lace shawl

I finally finished the shawl I’ve been working on for forever.  (Well, I finished it a while ago but only just now got around to a blog post about it.  oops!)
It was my ‘downtime’ knitting project for when I wasn’t working on my own designs and when I needed some knitting with me, so it was worked on very sporadically.

Pattern:  Queen Anne’s Lace by MMario
Yarn: Knit Picks Shadow in color ‘Altitude’ – 3 skeins
Needles: US 6
Started:  March 14, 2014
Finished:  May 20, 2015
Modifications:  I followed the pattern pretty much as written, except for the very end.  I didn’t like that the final motif didn’t come to a point, so I added rows bringing that motif to a point, then added about 12 rows of basic point lace to the very edge to give the edge a more lacy look.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, now I just need Fall to get here so I can wear it!

I have a few blog posts in the works, so hopefully it won’t be so long before my next post.  Until then, Happy Knitting!
