Victorian lace today



Here is my first finished project from the book Victorian Lace today. It is the Spider's-web shawl. I used kidsilk haze and increased the repeats till I ran out of yarn. I did the 1/2 hexagon version. I love the shape of it.





I added beads to the bottom of it because it was so light. I thought they would help keep the bottom down.I have not yet blocked it so it is going to be large.



Here is a close up of the pattern. You can see the transition from one pattern to another.Now onto my next project.

It looks beautiful. I just bought the book for myself and am having a hard time deciding on my first VLT project.

I am new to knitting and lace knitting.

Hi; love your shawl, this book, knitting, yarn, and homeschooling. I am at a stopping place in my pleasure knitting right now, trying to decide what shawl to do. So many choices!!!!!!
