Green leafy lace shawl

Here is a UFO that is finally finished!!!
I've been knitting this in the background, when the mood strikes, or sometimes during road trips, and I pulled it out on Christmas, deciding it would be finished and ready to wear, instead of taking up space in my studio (besides, I need more space for quilting). Above is a photo of it before blocking, and below is after blocking. What a difference!

Because it was so large, I figure you'd like a closer view, so here are a couple more pics, so you can see the details:

The shawl is beautiful. Doesn't blocking just make the difference? I finally broke down and bought some blocking wires from knitpics.com and haven't regretted it.

Do you use the blocking wires, Lynn? Your shawl is very pretty! I love the edging. What pattern did you use, or is it one of your own invention?
