FO - Shawl
For those of you who read my thread on the frustrating "class" for this shawl, here's the finished project. I do love the results. LOVE this yarn. It's Kudo and I used about 2.5 skeins - bought 4 so have some leftover for a scarf. The pattern is easy - did a couple of things I've never done before, like dividing the stitches to make the "pocket" for the second "bow." It's done in short rows. Not sure I like the holes that makes so if I make another one will research way to avoid that. This weight is perfect for taking into air conditioned places this summer.

It turned out very nice Wanda! Too bad the class was so frustrating, but the end result is lovely!

Very nice indeed! For picking up short row wraps without holes, look at the knitty article, and there's a video on the Tips page.

Oops! Just realized I put this under General Knitting instead of Whatcha Knitting? Sorry!

ETA: And thanks for all the compliments! Glad you all think it's pretty too!
