Why did I wait so long? This shawl was a quick knit once I finally cast on. The pattern is a bit tricky at first but after a few repeats is it quite obvious to see mistakes and fix them easily. I only had to tink back once...granted it was in the last repeat and it was a row and a half. That is what I deserved for my drinking (only one weak gin & tonic) and knitting.
The linen blocked beautifully!
