Andromeda II

Let me show you something.

I finished a thing.  A shawl.  And here is a picture of it:

My BFF, pretending to be one with nature.  She ain't.

I love it.  I made this for a woman I know who loved my first shawl when she saw me wearing it.  She wanted a deep red color with a black picot edge.   I worked the pattern as written for the DK weight version of the shawl with a picot edge (You can also choose a garter edge.), except I added an additional repeat on the border.

The giver in me wants to make one of these for about 5 of my female relatives for Christmas.  The realist in me says, "Nope.  Your fingers will die.".  Gift cards it is.

Now that this is done, I can get back to working on this tank top design.
