Second time around, still the same yarn.

17 Jun 2012: Tried to knit as much as possible despite the hot weather. Knitting confined indoors but managed to get to Row 19 of chart before heading back home. Hope to finish this before the KAL deadline.

22 Jun 2012: Oops! Deadline was the 15th so I missed it royally! But on the flipside, I have a new shawl. Wheeee!

This is slightly smaller as the yarn was used to make a pair of fingerless gloves for my niece. Even though she had tiny hands then, still not enough leftover to complete the short rows. Glad I stopped short rowing when I did because I used up every last inch!

Modified the edging to add a 6-row garter edge to prevent curling. Used suspended bind off.

Love love love!

Oh but the yarn bled like a gutted fish while soaking/rinsing!
