Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl Is Done;)





Today is my hubby's Birthday he helped me block my shawl before he left to buy a game and a starbucks and to just have a whole day for himself:)You can click on the pictures to see the shawl up close.I was able to get 12 repeats of the body of the shawl with the 440 yrds/200g of Alpaca/merino that Lizet dyed for me for Christmas with only 1 ounce left over.The shawl is 68 inches across the wingspan and 28 inches down the center back.My first lace shawl Iam stoked cant wait for it to finish blocking so I can wear it.Iam going to wear it to Stitches West the end of this month.I will show it off at the Knotty knitter Gathering Tomorrow Woo Hoo a FO!!!
