Adamas, or More Shawl Than You Wanted to Know About

Adamas, she is finished. Rinsed, blocked, and smelling sweetly of lavender. Details:
Adamas pattern by Mimknits
Size 5 Addi Lace Needles (Da Bomb)
Hunt Valley Cashmere 2-ply, just over 3 ounces (~800 yards by my guesstimate)
Started 1 June 2008
Finished 18 June 2008


Behold, many pictures. If you don't come for the knitting, move along...nothing to see here.


For the rest of you, here's Adamas pinned out on the double bed. It blocked even larger than I expected.


Here you can really see the pattern details well. Blocking is truly magic for lace knitting. No more wet noodles now!


I like this detail shot because you can see the fluff and imagine the softness of the cashmere.


This is a doofy shot but I tried to reduce two similar pictures so that the gate is the same size in both. You can really see how the lace has opened up and the shawl has GROWN after blocking.
