The shawl is supposed to be a semi-circle, but my finished piece is 60" wide and 33" long, a tiny bit oval. I'm really glad I omitted one of the repeats (in the section before the mesh lace) or it would be noticeably oval-ish (and yikes, even bigger!) I modeled it on the backside of the dress form just for fun. I really think I'll wear it more like a cowl (as in the first photo above).
I do love the Shibui Staccato for lace. It blocks beautifully and has a slight sheen, thanks to the silk content; it's also nice to knit.
That's pretty much the whole story, but I've updated my Ravelry project page if you want to see more.
Wishing everyone a happy weekend!
