I finally finished the Aestlight Shawl that I started the month before I got married, nearly two years ago...September 7, '09! I've decided to take it out of hibernation mode (bad case of "startitis" then!) and finish this bad girl up.



I'm really digging this shawl. It looks really good after soaking and blocking it. I'm very pleased that I saved this yarn for this project, rather than socks.



My model, Victoria wearing the shawl.



I used size US7 needles for this project. I was getting really worried that my shawl was smaller than the one in the pattern, but everything turned out fine after the blocking.



If you would like to see more of the photos and blurbs about this project, you can visit my blog: http://knitting-up-a-storm.blogspot.com/2011/07/aestlight-shawl.html to read/see more!



Thanks for checking this out. Smiley
