Finished object! I got distracted by doggie cuteness earlier, but better late than never!! Here is Damask:
I absolutely love the pattern. I absolutely love the yarn. I really like the the finished shawl.... But I have a sneaking feeling that probably I shouldn't have made this pattern in this yarn. I think that this gorgeous shawl would have shown better in a semi-solid yarn. So I bought more yarn to make it again when we went to Charleston yesterday! I do like it. I just feel like I could have loved it. Sigh.
Anyway, that was shawl 1 of 2011. Done in 11 days, amazingly enough... It is looking good for 11!!
Here is a look at number 10 from last year, all blocked and pretty:
I have already worn it twice, just blocked it two days ago. Shawl love. Knitting makes me smile.
