A Finished Object at Midnight

I have been to hell and back with this shawl and I'm so thrilled that I finished it. It's a modified Amari shawl. I did not do the lace bottom, instead opting for twelve rows of gater stitch, finished of with a folded picot hem. It's not big enough to wrap around my neck (grrr), but it does sit nicely on the shoulders. It better fit because I had to harvest the long ends where I changed balls to finish the darned thing. Gave me trouble til the very end.

I'm in a little disbelief that I've finally finished this shawl.

So how do you like to do your finished object modeling shots?

What a beautiful color for your Amari Shawl. Tucked into the collar of your jacket or coat will be a lovely accent so I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing it.

@Evelyn,

To be fair, I LOVE the shawl now that it's finished. The alpaca is soooooo soft. I think I'm probably going to wear it every evening to keep me warm through the winter. I just wish I could have gotten my head together to knit the lace, but it just wasn't happening without a chart.
