9/22/2012--Pics taken and posted. Finished at last! I love it. It’s the perfect size to wrap around my neck, my shoulders, or my head. Bring it, winter, I’m ready for ya!

9/21/2012--Pinned out and blocking after soaking overnight.

9/19/2012--Cast off the last stitch.

7/19/2012--Like many others, I decided to use beads for the lights instead of making a bobble. Hobby Lobby had exactly what I was looking for: a rectangular iridescent glass bead, Color Gallery by Bead Treasures #957498. No size on the card, but they’re slightly smaller than my pinky nail.

7/6/12 -- I unashamedly stole the name of this project from someone else. But it’s true. I am not a shawl person. With the exception of those rare formal occasions in which I’m clad in a sleeveless evening gown, I almost never wear a shawl. But this project called to me soooo loudly that I became one, at least for this one pattern. We’ll see if it becomes a trend.
