Shawl is finished!


The ridiculously basic shawl I was working on in SWTC Karaoke is finished. I'm undecided whether it will be for me or not-- a dent in my holiday knitting would be nice too. It took 7 skeins, just garter st with eyelet increases (and a little eyelet border to match). It grew about 6" with blocking, so now it's pretty cozy-looking. The color is Mermaid Mix, if you were wondering.

How lovely! The garter stitch shows the yarn colors to perfection! Wear it (or give it away) in good health!!

It is lovely. I am sure that you will be happy if you keep it...and happy if you give it as a gift to someone special. :-) Win win situation!

Pretty shawl. The stripes make it look like you worked at it a little harder, we won't tell anyone if it was simple!
