needle: sz. 6

started: march 17, 2011

finished: november 15, 2011

finally done! wahoooooooooooooo! i've never really made something like this before, shawls are no joke! blocking it took up almost all the floor space in my tiny studio :) hehe.

the color is so vibrant, i really love how this turned out. and its one of those pieces that people can't believe was handmade. makes me so proud! :)

i had just enough yarn to finish, actually a little less. i had to make the garter stitch border 2 rows instead of 5 because i was cutting it so close.

first shawl...check!
