Needles: US 5 circular needle
Started: November 26, 2010

I loved making this and have even contemplated making another. The yarn is fabulous to work with and even making the largest size shawl I could have added repeats to make this even larger.
The only reason why I didn't was because I was concerned about the need to have at least 1/3 of the yarn in reserve to finish the edge charts and bind off using two strands.
This will most likely be the only shot with me wearing it, as the temps in Chicago are ridiculously cold. Wind chill this morning was around 10 degrees.
You know, if I hadn't ripped back a full chart repeat I would have been done with this before Christmas. A lace shawl in a months time. Yeah, that is crazy, but a good crazy.
