Though I already did my share of lacy knitting, this was my first "real" lace shawl. The pattern is called Adamas Shawl, and by Miriam L. Felton. I see now why lace knitting is so addictive. I loved making this, and even though I knew about this I was still amazed how far 100 grams of lace yarn can go. By the way the yarn was a 100 grams, 950 yards of this yarn.
