Big Damn Needles + Big Damn Yarn = Big Damn Lace

Started on evening of August 24th, finished yesterday afternoon (the 28th), washed and blocking on my bed right after work tonight (could only get the whole thing in the frame by standing on the bed which is not ideal for keeping a steady camera hand). Third photo is daylight colour-true, fourth is just to show you what lace looks like before it's blocked ... an amorphous lumpy blob of yarn). Blocked "wingspread" is 140.5 cm (55 inches), "spine" is 63 cm (24 3/4 inches).

The joys of bulky yarn on 9mm diameter needles. ;-)
