I Finished my First Shawl!!!

...and my first garment, as well!!! The shawl has taken me a couple of months to knit, row after painstaking row, stitch after painstaking stitch, mistake after painstaking mistake (haha just kidding... well actually, no I'm not), and ended up reaching 57 inches in width!!!

Here it is in all its finished glory (unfortunately the top edge rolled up, hiding the border, but you'll get the idea):

I've also found it makes a great lap blanket too!! :)


  1. thats beautiful ... gorgeous colours :)

  2. Wow! The big projects are so pretty when done but they take forever to complate!. I have a shawl that's been patiently waiting for me. I started it as soon as I sold my first one. I should have waited longer :-)

    Beautiful work!

  3. wow, thank you so much for your compliments!!! :D It means a lot to me!!! Yeah and this item is DEFINITELY not for sale lol -- I'd have to charge like, $200 for it to even come close to making up for the time it took!! :)

  4. love the shawl, lovely edging and awesome colors- well done!
