I had barely got started with the green yarn by the end of the workshop, but I have now finished two pattern repeats - enough to show the lace patterns emerging. This is one end of the final shawl - the garter stitch section on the right gets wider, and then narrower again. I think it's going to turn out very well.
It will need blocking (when it's all finished) to show the lace design properly - here's a section of Sarah's own shawl to show what the lace looks like when it's blocked.
There were four other workshops running at the same time as ours - an Irish crochet workshop led by Sally Magill was in the same (big) room as ours, so I saw what they were making too. They had produced some very nice motifs in two hours - shamrocks, roses, scrolls.
