Diamond shawl

The project started in the previous post is accomplished now inspite of the inhumane weather conditions. It's a merino wool lace shawl with continuous diamonds and zig-zags.
The colour is very neutral greyish brown, wearable with almost anything. Usually I don't like to use stitch patterns with "sharp corners" with wool, but I was aiming for a shawl that would look more modern rather than too romantic. If lace can be unromantic at all, that is.
And to think of all the extra warmth captured in it...

If you would like to knit a similar shawl, why not try the Allegretto shawl pattern.
