Finally, A Finished Object for Friday!

I've really been into this alliteration thing for titles lately. But, you didn't come here for my adoration of alliteration as of late, did you? Nope, you came to see what I finished, didn't you? So, I present you, without further ado, my first finished object of 2007!

Pattern: The Hidcote Garden Shawl by the talented Miriam Felton
Finished size: About 80 X 38 which is a little smaller than the pattern specifies, but still plenty big
Needles: Size 3
Yarn: Viola Handpainted Lace from Sweet Georgia
No modification. This pattern is a joy, very interesting to do and really keeps you on your toes because of all the different decreases.
And the closeup:

I am so happy with how this shawl turned out. The yarn is just perfect and the pattern is just incredible. Maybe this weekend, I'll get some elegant modeled shots. Now, I'm already to pick Forest Path Stole back up just in time for the February start date of the KAL.

And I'm really happy to have a finished object finally. I haven't finished anything since the Hexagon Shawl. That's two whole months without a FO! I hope now to get a few rather quickly as the socks are almost done and I have a second snowman vest also nearly done.

Wow, your Hidecote Garden Shawl is so beautiful!

Knee socks are actually pretty easy I think (not that I've ever made any "real" ones...) Theresa at the Keyboard Biologist is doing a tutorial right now... (http://www.keyboardbiologist.net
