That is the amount of yarn needed to make this :
It is Maplewing by Anne Hanson. Details on my Ravelry page.
Yarn is Wollmeise Lace-Garn in color Die Auster. I did make the larger version and followed the pattern. The only modification made is that I used 3.5 and not 3.75 needle.
I did make it rather fast. The shawl is not a "fast knitted shawl". I only spent far to many hours during a cold winter week. I did figure out that I needed to stay put on this and knit it fast to complete it. That's mainly due to the fact that the purl rows are not "plain" purl, but knitted in pattern and lots of 2 purled stitches together through back loop.
I do however enjoy the result of the work. It is a wonderful shawl. I did make it large to have use of it during summer, to go with nice summer dresses.
The shawl is my second one in the 2010 10 shawl knitalong at Ravelry
