My Very First Shawl Is Done!

Actually, it is the second shawl I started, but it is the first one finished.... And, technically, it might be called a "stole"? Anyway~ It's done. I started this thing in April of '07~ yikes... Shows you how bad I am at finishing things. Which is why I am being so hard on myself to get things done before I start any new ones.
Sorry 'bout the bikes in the background.... The best place to get pictures for light is outside. And there's no way I'm standing in the front yard with all the neighbors "What is she doing?" lol :P Anyway~~ It is this pattern , one that Mimi did, too! (Now we have "matching" shawls, Mimi! :P) Except mine is not in thread, but Jamie baby pompadour yarn since I had a lot. I still think it will be okay.....

Here's a picture of it so you can *kind* of see it better... The edging and all.... I blocked it last night, but I can see it is going to go back to the way it was anyway even after blocking.... Oh well.
I have another shawl I want to finish (this one was started even before the spiderweb one...) I just need to dig it out and finish it. :) That's three things I can cross of my WIP pile list now. YAY!!!

Hi... the shawl is very beautiful and is looking so lovely!!! Did u make it by joining motifs or is it just a one piece shawl?

Tina said...

v jr, it is all one piece. I was wondering that myself. It is a very easy pattern to do, too. The only thing I think I did separate was the edging.

Thank you, Lesa, and Lucy! Thank you all for stopping by. :D
