Well, here is my finished shawl. I am very happy with the end results. It was a plain garter stitch pattern but I think the fringe really made it look great.
Thanks to everyone on KH for the suggestions on the edging, I went with the fringe and I think it was a good idea, kinda pulls your eye away from the rows of knitting when you look at it. Or dresses it up.
And I love the way the color came out.
