In which I present 'Bridgewater'

Well, the big shawl is knit and blocked and done! Loosely based on Jared Flood's Bridgewater, I took the general design (garter square + lace) and substituted a modified version of 'Chinese Lace' from Barbara Walker's 2nd treasury, and a modified wave chart from Eunny Jang's Print O' the Wave pattern. Yarn is Zitron Filigran lace weight (just over 2 skeins, so lots leftover to do something with), knit on my long-suffering Addis. Finished size is just about 48" per side, so... 65" on the diagonal or so?
Enough chitchat, have some photos while I go pack for a trip to New York! (yes, I will visit yarn stores if I can find them)
