About a year ago, I first saw this pattern as a part of the Woolgirl sock club. Tried as I might, no one would destash the pattern :(
So, when Carrie found out she would be able to sell it herself, she asked me to knit a sample for her. She sent me the yarn and I started knitting on it the weekend we met up in Phoenix.
I didn't get the chance to block before I sent it for her photoshoot.
Here's a close up of the body of the shawl.

Madelinetosh Sock in Vermillion (a hard to photograph red)
US 5 needles
I was a bit worried that I would run out of yarn so the last 4 rows were knit with a size 4, then I bound off with a size 5. Figures, I didn't need to as I had 4 oz. leftover. It was an easy pattern to knit. I did use a ton of stitchmarkers for the edging, that's the only way I can make sure I don't make a mistake on lace.
No mods....well except for the needle downsizing for a few rows. Great use of sock yarns!
Now to knit up my own ;)
