Just to prove that I actually have knitted a lace shawl, may I present Enchanted Wood (also know as Hell Freezes Over).
I did this as part of a Unique Sheep KAL in February. I did post blocking shots back then, but never got around to the official FO post.
The yarn is from the Unique Sheep, in what they call a "gradience" colorway, which is a series of specially dyed skeins that progress from on color to another as you move from skein to skein. I like the idea, but it works better in some colorways than others, and the progression is occasionally a little more abrupt than I would like. I suppose that's the nature of hand dyeing. (It didn't stop me from ordering another gradience colorway for their next KAL...which I dropped out of during the eternal and horrific cast on. But that's another story.)
This was also my first (and only) attempt at knitting with beads, and I loved it!
I haven't had an opportunity to wear this yet, but it does grace Bertha (the dress form) in my craft room, so I get to enjoy it every day anyway.
It remains to be seen whether I will (successfully) tackle another lace shawl, but at least I can prove I knitted one once!
