The "Maia Shawl" I finished a few months ago is finally blocked! Yay! And, I couldn't be happier with it. The colors in the Madeline Tosh Lace yarn are so pretty. And, this pattern...WOW! The designer really knows crochet and really knows how to write a pattern. The pattern is beyond impressive. Just the fact that this intricate lace can be created from a written pattern and no chart is amazing. But, every stitch the designer chose and where they put it was genius! It's the most intricate lace project I've done and absolutely the most rewarding.
It took less than 950 yards that were in the skein and I used a size "G" crochet hook to make it.
So gorgeous! I love it!
Blocking took more time than usual and a LOT more pins! I love the extra little detail/point between the big points.
It was worth every minute and every pin. Check out these details...
I need to figure out who designed this and see what else they have to offer. Their master pattern designing and writing skills are worth every penny of the pattern.
