FO; Children of the Lir

I finally finished the Children of the Lir stole, and I really love it.



I have to admit though, I'm not thrilled with the color. It's just not one I would have chosen, but it matches the dress I'll be wearing.

It also blocked out longer than I expected, but that's probably a good thing.



Wings of the Swan:



Specs:
Pattern: Children of the Lir Stole from Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls by Martha Waterman
Yarn: Indiecita Alpaca Sport
Needle size: 10
Started: July 2007
Finished: September 2007
Modifications: I didn't knit from the middle out, but end-to-end.

I'll post the action shots after the wedding.

I love the color so when you're done with the wedding you can just send it my way. Okay?
