I must apologize for my extended absence from the blog...but I really didn't want to post until I had something completed! And what a "something" I finally finished...
Yes, Flirty Ruffles is knit, blocked, and ready to rock 'n' roll (or at least float 'n' flutter)!
Pattern specs: "Flirty Ruffles Shawl" from Fiddlesticks Knitting.
Yarn: Zephyr wool-silk laceweight in color Black (almost 3 complete skeins used), knit with size 5 needles

Nice pattern with wonderful, large charts. Didn't have any problems the whole time. This did seem to take forever to knit, especially for a slowpoke like me (started Memorial day weekend, so it took about 4.5 months)! I really couldn't be any happier with how it came out.

Now, time to take a deep breath before starting my next big project (which is most assuredly not a lace shawl).

Great shawl, I love it in black. It's a very feminine pattern but the black also makes it very sophisticated. Congrats!

Effing g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s!!!! It's stunning, and I like the oh-so-casual way you're wearing it. How long and wide did it turn out after blocking?

Wow, you've really outdone yourself this time! The shawl is so pretty! I love the ruffles, this is the first I've seen anything like it. And think of all the new projects you can start with this one off the needles!

Super job. I'd just twirl around in it and then use it for a batman cape. Really, really pretty.
