I have the issue Interweave had first published this pattern in (Summer 2005), but didn't fall in love with it until I saw it again in this year's gift issue, the Lacy Kerchief Shawl (second from the bottom  http://www.interweave.com/knit/special_issues/gifts_preview.asp).

Fresh off the needles just last night.  I adore this pattern, I did not get bored with it at all (all 82 inches).  It was such a pleasure to knit.  I did not use the recommended yarn, instead I chose my absolute favorite yarn, Farmhouse Yarns Silk Spun Cotton in Grey Mist (60% cotton, 32% lamb's wool, 8% Silk, it took three skeins with a bit to spare).  I also have the same yarn in Butter (pale, muted yellow) and I'm considering knitting another for the hell of it.  So in love.

This turned out great!!!  I didn't care for it when I saw it in the magazine - must have been the pink yarn they used.  Your version is so much nicer!  I'm going give that pattern a second look.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

It's beautiful and it looks so soft.  I'd love it in 'butter yellow' as well.

Yours is really nice!  I love this project as well.  I finished mine about 2 years ago when the mag first came out.  Mine is knit with this lavender Cotton Fleece.
