I finished the Cowl a week or so ago and the shawl today. Shawl still needs to be blocked. It was my first ever shawl with first ever picot bind off that I added myself!

Shawl was made with Deborah Norville's Garden Yarn in Hibiscus and the Cowl with Caron's Country in Peacock.

Shawl does still need to be blocked and the ends woven in. I was so excited about finishing it that I had to take a picture!

It's a great cowl and I've made a couple for gifts for friends as well. It's an easy and fun project!

The shawl was made with Deborah Norville's new yarn called Garden Yarn and that color is Hibiscus. It's 100% Dralon Microfiber (what ever that is :) ) but it feels like a very soft cotton. :) It was really nice how the color made it's own stripes. I am very pleased.

Thanks everyone for all the kind comments!

Very nice job on both. Is there a picot bind off pattern? I really like the looks of it.

Nice job. I considered a picot bind off for mine, but then I didn't add it.

Yes, http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/FEATfall06TT.html
Scroll down until you find Picot bind off. This is what I used and it's easy peasy!
Thanks for the compliments!
