Here she is finally blocking. I loved working on this shawl, my very first charted lace shawl. Mim's patterns are so well written, and her support of knitters is fantastic!!

My Seraphim is Frog Tree Brushed Fingering Weight Suri Alpaca. I bought 5 skeins (about 200 yds each) and used 4. I should have made it at least one repeat bigger for myself but wasn't sure. It blocked to about 73 inches by 37 inches. I chose the brushed suri because we have a white cat and this is to be a shawl for use around the house so it was already "cat hair" friendly. Although Seraphim turned out so beautiful I bet she gets to go outside too!!

I want to make another one, slightly bigger and in a smoother yarn. But first to finish Icarus :)

Wow!!! she is just beautiful! I love the yarn choice and color. You did a fantastic job and it makes me wanna finish even faster! I would like to attempt the Icarus shawl next, as well. Yah! for Miriam and her great patterns.

Beautiful! And I'm glad to hear you needed only 800 yards, as I have only 850 yards for mine.

I love your color.

I love the color too... it is inspiring enough to pick up mine again (if only it weren't so darn hot LOL).

Cheers Eva
