What are you most proud of? This is a new shawl shape for me; I've never made a crescent shaped one before. The large lace pattern on the edge turned out very nicely.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The large leaves on the edging will take more than half of your yardage, so make sure you have enough. I had to rip back to three repeats of the body chart (10 "stems") because I ran out of yarn.

The shawl really is beautiful! Can you give me an idea of it's dimensions? Thanks.

It's about three feet across at the widest bit, and about 2 1/2 feet tall. I used worsted weight yarn (makes it go faster, and the fo is larger), but the pattern suggests fingering weight.
