Hey! I finished something else! It is also grey! I've really been drawn to grey yarn lately. I think it is because it goes so well with everything.
This shawl was knit out of worsted weight cotton yarn, so it has some heft to it.
I'm envisioning this as a shawl I will keep at my desk to ward off air conditioning throughout the summer, which is how that grey-goes-with-everything theory of mine will get tested.
The variety of lace patterns on this shawl made for an interesting knit. The border along the bottom is knit on at the end, which ended up taking as long as the rest of the shawl did to knit.
I was surprised to find that after I blocked the shawl, it turned out to be as tall as I am!
