All Shawl, All the Time

Today truly sucked, but I came home and saw this,

and my day improved a lot. The shawl, she is finished. I think she stretched out some with blocking. Want to see a close up, you say? Here's a section close to the right wing.

A couple of the leaf motifs in the center.

The straight upper edge, lovely in its simplicity.

More of the center, leaf edging.

The right side again.

And the left.

I've just folded it up and I'm thinking I may have to have another photo session in the morning, when the light is better. You won't mind, will you?

Saroyan shawl, thanks to the ADD Knitter. I loved it! And even though I'm not a shawl wearer, I foresee another shawl in my future.


  1. It's beautiful, Rose. Sorry your day was a disappointment, but all's well that ends well. I couldn't think of a better ending than a finished object.

  2. I love that shawl...she's beautiful. And I like that she has wings. You have truly soared with this one.

  3. Wish you Good luck!

    Happy Knitting!

  4. The leaf edging is absolutely beautiful!
