My Shawl Complete

I have finally completed my shawl. I started this on January 1, 2011. This is the first thing I have really ever made for myself. I have made some dish scrubbies but how do you enjoy those? In October or so I purchased about $60.00 in yarn to make this shawl and an infinity scarf from www.NaturallyCaron.com. Last night I finally finished this shawl! The only thing left to do is block it. However, I do not have a blocking board and we do not want to use a mattress. One of these days I may have a blocking board... or Jeff will finally make me one.

I did have a booboo when I was almost done with the silver part of the lace bottom... I realized that I was using the wrong color. I had intended for the lace to be green... and I switched the colors! I now have 2 skiens of green to use elsewhere! Enjoy my photos!
