Romance Shawl

Seen here in the unblocked state:

and here blocked, on the chair:

Yarn: Patons Baby 2 ply 100% wool

Source: Unknown Boutique (aka Charity Shop)

Pattern: Dorothy Siemens at Fiddlesticks Knitting

Needles: 3mm Addi cirss

Started: 17th January 2007

Finished: 25th March 2007

Blocked: 12th April 2007

Size: length - 42 inches
top edge - 92 inches
slanted sides - 54 inches

Weight: 113g

Lovely pattern (as Dorothy's patterns always are). I really like the double edging and the way that makes it heavier at the bottom. This causes it to hang beautifully.

Your shawl is just beautiful. I so want to make a shawl, I am new so I haven't attempted it yet. Was this one difficult?
