UPDATE .... I won first prize in the knitting section and managed to take out the supreme needlework item .. very nice suprise .
The judges were taken by the pattern and the drape of the shawl ... so from a very hpapy knitter ..Thank you Miriam for the beautiful pattern!!
Finished and unblocked .......boy did the binding off take a lot of wool . I used about 1 and 1/2- 2/3 of the 2nd handpainted yarn skein Blocked and beautiful .. so nice that I ''ve entered her in our local show (a little ol' dear with her crochet needle and 12 ply will beat me , but who cares ..I just want the world to admire her !)
I enjoyed this KAL and it gave me the 'ummph' to keep going and not abandon the knitting ..so thanks to you all .
After the weekend I'll post a proper picture .
