Success! Green Shawl is done!

imageHey everybody! Exciting news (at least for me). After nearly one year and some very slow knitting, I have finally finished my lovely green shawl! Several posts ago, I mentioned that I pulled this project out of deep hibernation and finally put myself to the task of finishing this little green monster.

I think I also eluded previously that this shawl pattern normally zooms right by, but I think this type of yarn was making it more difficult for me to add a lace border.

Despite all the frogging and re-knitting I did on this shawl, I absolutely love the results! It light enough for spring-like weather, but warm enough to ward off the seemingly never-ending winter chill. Here is some photos of me wearing my shawl in honor of St. Patrick’s Day yesterday:

In case you want to try this shawl for yourself, here is a video of the basic pattern without the border:

Thank you for everyone that encouraged me to finish this. Now it’s time to finish up those springtime placemats!

Stay tuned…
