yes.. it's finished.. !! I'll take some more pictures later.. the finished size is pretty big although mine is 3" smaller than the pattern suggests.. but I'm petite so all is good.. I do tend to crochet on the firm side.. if I make this again I might go up a hook size .. I'm not sure that it's necessary though.. the finished diameter of mine is 45" and the model was 48"...











and of course.. I casted on a new project.. this is another stash buster.. I've had this yarn not quite a year.. sitting in a basket.. I bought it for a lace project of some sort and just couldn't decide which project was in my range ..I'm just horrible at keeping track of my stitches and usually mess something up and have to rip..but for some reason it's just with lace.. I don't have problems with other patterns or stitches.. so .. this is the project I choose.. it's the easiest pattern in Victorian Lace today.. and no matter what.. I'm going to try to complete this scarf/shawl..the yarn is so fine also.. it's like knitting with hair.. sometimes it seems to disappear altogether .. or become almost transparent.. yikes.. wish me luck.. !!
