Comments: I think this is one of those lace patterns that would look better in a thicker yarn, knit on slightly too small needles.  The pattern is pretty clear in this photo, but in real life, its a little hard to make out the shapes of the leaves - and I think that would be corrected by knitting it in a thicker yarn.  This would make a nice winter wrap, I think - maybe in green, and then you could embroider little berries on it in places...
