9/25/13 -Selling this! I never wear it and I need the cash. SOLD!

6/11/11 - DONE! This thing is HUGE. I just have a few ends to weave in, but otherwise, it is done! I think. Although I am toying with the idea of a beaded edge, but nothing fancy…

4/22/11 - After slowly, slowly working on this over the past year in between other projects, I am nearing the end. It is really wide and has a nice weight to it! I can’t wait to wear it. :)

Cast on I don’t know how many stitches -- enough to fill the super long size ten circular needles I had bought for a sweater I never started…

Knit a few rows in garter stitch, switched to stockinette (with a four stitch garter border on each side) and decreasing by two every other row on the knit sides.

Started with a skein of Mango Moon I bought over a year ago and will add in four more skeins as needed that I bought from two lovely ladies here on Ravelry. :) All colorways are slightly different, so I should end up with a big, heavy shawl with five big “stripes”. Hoping it looks as nice as it sounds in my head.
