My green shawl is finally finished, just in time for spring. Whew! That took much longer than it was supposed to, but I guess it is my own fault for being such a perfectionist. I blocked it on Saturday and wore it to church yesterday. The color of yarn is truer in the picture of the full shawl than in the detail pic.
Here are the specs:
Pattern: Large Rectangle shawl from Victorian Lace Today. I rewrote the edging pattern for a deeper edging, as the shawl was rather small and the silk would not stretch much when blocked.
Yarn: Jade Sapphire Cashmere-Silk (55% silk, 45% cashmere; 400 yds.) in the Oceana colorway, 2 skeins.
Needles: The pattern called for a size 7, but I used a 6 instead.
Finished size: 62″ x 22″
