Pint-Sized Paradise Shawl

Hello All-

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had started a shawl while on vacation in Florida.  Well, it is done...and it is short..too short.  I used the suggested yarn, the suggested needle, and the suggested number of skeins, but it came out half-sized. 

Not to worry, the Diva took one look at it and fell in love.  So, my paradise shawl that I had such high hopes for is now a pint-sized one. 

I suppose I could have bought more yarn and kept going on it, but in all honesty, I have a to-do list that was creeping up behind it and I needed to finish. 

The pattern is The Shoreline Lace Shawl by Lion Brand.  I used 2 full skeins of Cotton-Ease yarn in their Azalea colorway.  I must say, the lace pattern is beautiful and quite easy.  I may add this one back to my Ravelry queue and make one for myself!

With blocking it would probably be much larger. :) Love the colour and pattern though. Might have to put it in my queue. ;)

I agree with Cyndi. Most lace requires massive blocking to achieve the proper size and look.... it opens up all the holes and highlights the pattern.....
