At last I got around to taking some photos of this shawl. It's so huge that I can't get all the details in....at least not without help of a model.
Anyway, as you can see, I've finished this shawl back in February.
I'm extremely proud of this FO. It's such a beautiful pattern coupled with gorgeous Wollmeise yarn.
Funny story attached to the shawl: On Saturday (22.03.2008) I went over to show the shawl to a friend who works at a LYS. When I got there, there was an Arabian lady (you know, the type that wear total black and cover everything up apart from the eyes) with her son there. She was crocheting something and was talking to my friend. As soon as she saw my shawl, she wanted to buy it off me. I'm pretty sure she would pay a very high price for it....but with the shawl being such a work of toil and its being my first one, I couldn't part with it. However, having someone who was willing to pay a handsome sum in Euro for a shawl that I knit is such a compliment.
But wait, there's one more!
Start: 05th February 2008
Finish: 21st March 2008
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Sockenwolle, 100% Superwash Merino in "Raku-Regenbogen" (Light and in an older version of the Raku)

Yay! It's finished. I really like it.
I used up most of the yarn. By the end, I have about 15 g of the yarn left. I think I could have added one more repeat to the straight rows (I've added 3 extra repeats already).
I'm going to send this one away. ;-) I've also started on a new one for myself in "Emil".
Well, that's all I have to show. Have a great week, everyone!
Current Mood: Good but tired.
