Pattern mods:
The pattern for the border was very easy to remember after a while. The stockinette part on the other hand took some liberation. I settled for a 3 stitches w&t option. Once only 18 stitches were left on either side I´ve switched to 5 stitches to make it steeper.

Finishing touches:
I bindend off with a three stiches i-cord. My BF made a blocking board specifically for me. ^^ You can find his instructions how he made it here if you like.

The yarn:
It´s really soft and a luxury to knit with. The price is also luxury. ;) Well you only live once and it was great fun and pleasure to knit.

Total yarn consumation:
The shawl itself weighs 78g and I have exactly 42g left.

I was with a friend in a new yarn shop in town and the skein just hopped in my hands. ;) you know how it is. ^^
