I have had this particular object done for a while now but have been monstrously lazy so haven't posted it here. I am terribly proud of it. The pattern is from the Spring/Summer 05 Edition of Family Circle's Easy Knitting Mag. Its quite simple and works up nicely. I made one error in it, that can't be seen in the picture. Then again, its a crappy pic so not much can be seen. Somehow I did a yarnover and it added a space. I contemplated frogging it back and fixing it, but decided to just let it stay, its in the back, my hair covers it and I had already completely frogged the project once so wasn't keen on doing so again, even if it was only two rows. I am justifying my choice of not frogging with the idea that the mistake/hole makes the whole object an original. Cheesy

I cannot say I am super fond of the color. I got it from Herschner's when they had a sale so the colors were kinda limited and as I was ordering it online it was hard to tell if I would like the color or not. Usually I have good luck, this time I wasn't quite as fond but it still is a nice color that goes with many of my clothes. Of course, I am so proud of it that I wear it with almost everything no matter if it goes or not. So I guess color really doesn't matter.  Grin

Excuse the bad pics. Hard to take anything good when one is taking the pics themselves.

Here is an attempt of a closeup of the ties, they are crocheted flowers and I love them.

For the ruffle edge you finish the shawl then get out your crochet hook and make chain loops in every row and every stitch across. Lots and lots of chains. It is the most time consuming part of the project but its worth it. For those of you not sure about crocheting, chains are the simplest of them all so easy to do.
