Kiri is finished!!

I finished Kiri today!! I really enjoyed knitting this shawl and I am very happy with the results. She'll make her debut at services Monday evening for Erev Rosh Hashana.

Here are the stats:
Start: 08.20.05
End: 10.01.05
Yarn: 1.25 hanks of KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud in Sunlight
Needles: MAIN BODY: size 4US (3.5mm) Inox circular
Needles: EDGING: size 7US (4.5mm) Inox circular
Repeats: 14 pattern repeats of chart 2
Finished size: 60" x 42"

I will definately use this yarn again. It is incredibly soft. In fact, I already started the Frost Flowers & Leaves shawl (Gathering of Lace) in the Peppermint colorway.

GORGEOUS!!!
I'm just finishing my 16th repeat, and I was considering doing one or two more, but since yours is about the size I want mine to be (and I'm using the same Alpaca Cloud), I'm going to stop and move on to the edging instead. I'm using a US5 circular, but I think I'll follow your example and go up a few sizes for the edging.
Thanks for sharing!!!

Beautiful! I've got 6 rows of the edging left and hope to finish tomorrow or Monday. Hope mine turns out as nice as yours!

I've just started this project recently! Enjoyed looking at your finished photo as it clearly shows the pattern - this is my first lace project, gulp!
