Was also rather irritated that the yardage for the shawl meant I didn't get to the pink bit in my colour changing yarn. I guess I could have frogged back and made it bigger but by the end I was so sick of it I just wanted it done :(
Having had that grumble though I'm actually really pleased with how the shawl turned out. Oh apart from the garter tab cast on which doesn't lie flat :-S I'm being rather unfair here as it was a free pattern but meh :-S
My camera wasn't very happy with the blue colours!
The beads are really pretty, they're royal blue with an irridescent sheen to them. I fancy using them in another project some time, I need a turquoise shawl I think lol
So yeah, mixed feelings towards this shawl, glad it's finished and I like how it's turned out :-) The pattern is straight forward but I wouldn't recommend it to a beginner lace knitter unless they were looking to push themselves. I expect this shawl will get borrowed by my daughters as the weather gets colder lol.
