Thank you.  I hope you enjoy knitting my shawl.

Beautiful and elegant!{#apploud.gif}{#apploud.gif}

Thank you so much.

Lovely. Thank you for sharing the pattern.{#awesome.gif}

You're most welcome and thank you.

How would I make this kid size?

Just stop knitting when it's the right size, then jump to the Picot Edging.

I loved this pattern, I made it as gift for my sister but it was short for her, how can I make it much bigger?  

To make it longer, just continue with the repeats or you could use a DK weight yarn and a bigger needle.  Make a swatch and see if the lace looks lacey enough.
