I loved the knitting of this shawl. And I love the finished object. It was quite a stretch, but I managed to get the finished object to block at the size described in the pattern: 50 inches along the hypotenuse. It's a definitely on the smaller side, but it should make a nice scarf-like piece. A few close ups:

This is a special birthday gift for a very special birthday. I hope the recipient likes it! I've already moved on to lace shawl #2. :)
