So, here it is: My version of the Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today.
The facts: I started this on 12/30/06, finished and blocked on 3/16/07.
Final size -- 68 inches in diameter.
The yarn is Zephyr 50% Merino/50% Silk in Ebony.
Knitted on size 4 Knitpicks Options.
Started with 9 stitches. Ended with 954 on the final row before the edging.
I added rows to the pattern to compensate for the smaller needle size and thinner yarn.
Do I look anything like the model in the book? I'm thinking I'll stick to my knitting!
