Brace yourselves I have a FO!
I made the Knitters review one skein shawl pattern since I had never made a shawl before.
Stats:
3skeins of Koigu (:drooling: )
size 7 needles


If I had it to do over again I would add another skein, otherwise I adore it! Now I just have to get my hands on some blocking wires So that I can properly block this beautiful thing. (No free work space in this house. uugh )

I love it! Which Koigu did you use (weight & colorway)? I've been wanting to make a shawl, so I may try that one.

Lovely job..so light you might take off and fly away! Blocking room is always painful. I have to felt something and then need to lay it out and I have no table at all currently and no knees to kneel down (sore as)
