Well, it's done!  I finally finished it!

 It was an adventure getting decent pictures, since as you can see from the photo, it's quite big! But, I happen to love giant shawls, so I'm quite happy with it.   It's got a nice big wingspan (I haven't yet measured to see just how big), and it's absolutely wonderful to wear!

When I took it to the Toronto Knitter's Guild March Meeting (March 21), people were commenting on the awesome colours. Well, I can't take credit for the colour choice -- the colours are the beautiful gradient kits of *OceanWindKnits on Etsy.   But, I'm absolutely thrilled with how they worked in the pattern!

The shawl itself is a crecent shawl with sections of garter stitch and sections of lace.  The bottom border is an i-chord bind off.  (And yes, it took a while, but it's not hard, I promise!)

I'm hoping to have the pattern up for testing sometime next week, if all goes well (I want to finish the pattern drafting for my Gauntlet Socks, first), but stay tuned here or on other social media channels for the test-knit call!

Hope you enjoyed my newest FO, and stay tuned for the pattern soon!
