Estonian Garden Wrap is Done

This is the most beautiful shawl I have made - and what a pleasure to make! I started with a provisional cast on for symetrical edgings. It was an easily memorized traditional Estonian lace pattern. The 5 stitch nupps on the lily of the valley border were a little slow, but definitely worth the time and effort! It feels so elegant, soft, light and airy yet warm.

Pattern:
Estonian Garden Wrap by Evelyn A. Clark
Yarn:
KnitPicks Shadow heathered merino wool (880 yards) Oregon Coast colorway
Needles:
Bryspun straights 3.5 mm
Size:
18"X65"

Here are a few boring blocking pictures for anyone that might be interested.......

The Oregon Coast colorway blends right into the carpet so there is not much to see. The only place I use pins is on the ends - the long edges just stick on the rug where I stretch them.
