Do I hear the bridal march?

Hello, Everyone,
Now I'm really excited.  We blocked the bridal shawl today.

In all eight feet of her glory...

Can you see the plum beaded dangles on the points?  Cab you see the hearts stitched into the edging lace?

See the points on the back...
Crazy good....

Or as a veil?

Bead dangles on the points...

And for a more casual effect...

And the back, nupps galore.

Breathtaking isn't it?  It weighs less than 3 ounces and can fit pulled through my wedding ring !  I may be just a tad prejudiced, but I think it turned out to be a museum quality bridal shawl!  I sure hope Shannon likes it!

We had it stretched out in a park to dry when it began to look like rain, so we took it back to Heather's to finish the job.  Good thing we did.  By the time we got to her place, it was raining.

Lilo sez, G'night.
Julie, very sastisfied on a cold, wet, rainy, windy, Tuesday night, at home in San Diego. 
No music, sorry, too wrapped up in the shawl


  1. Hi, Terry,
    The bind off an be done plain or with beads. Each side of the lace edging is knit and then bound off separately. The the corners are seamed. I have since written up the pattern in an improved form and posted it to Ravelry. It can be found at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search?query=Julie+Lanner

    Try this shawl sometime! It's so much fun to make.
