Here you have the WIP at 600 sts on use 10 , 6mm. The pattern is very similar to the Sun Bag, but a bit more stitches in it. There are still about 36 rounds to go and the garter stitch border done vertically.

That red center really makes

That red center really makes this shawl go "POP"! But I love the way the gray striping helps tone it down in the midsection. Great knitting, yet again, Andy.

It's actually a blanket, but

It's actually a blanket, but you can definitely make into a shawl if you use fingering weight yarn, I don't see why you could not. It will be as tall as me or more when I block it, I am 65" tall. I think I will steam block it.

Sorry about that. I once

Sorry about that. I once knit a Pi Shawl that was so huge my friend used it as a bedspread on her queen-sized bed. That was in worsted weight yarn on size 10 needles. Took forever to get around the last section per round. But it was gorgeous.
