Flower Basket Shawl

It is finally finished. I have to admit it, this is one of my most favorite patterns in lace. As a beginner, it was easy and really boosted my self-confidence.

Below are pictures of the FBS....

Blocked & Unblocked




Here are some close-ups....



I used 3 1/2 skeins of Sinfonia's Omega, 100% cotton.
Finished size is approximately 85" x 40".
The color is not a favorite, but as a stash-buster, it was great.

Now... to figure out what to do next.... decisions, decisions.....

I saw your post on the Lace Shawl KAL. The flower basket shawls are gorgeous! I really like the bird's nest shawl too, especially the color. Regarding blocking, have you seen Yarn Harlots string blocking method? No need to buy wires!
