This is the biggest thing I've knit - I've done only dishcloths & scarves before this... It's my only accessory I'm wearing with my dress for my Vow Renewal Ceremony on September 3rd. So, here it is being modelled by my dress:

It's knit with Cotton Sensation on size 15 US needles. I learned how to increase by knitting into the front & back of one stitch. I also learned how to pick up a dropped stitch and go back and fix a mistake. (which is much more useful than frogging the whole thing!  Grin) I really wanted to knit the Isabeau Purse that someone else posted here, but I'm just not that fast enough... Yet... I've also discovered that I love shawls - so if anyone can point me in the direction of some great patterns, please do!

Have you looked on Knitty.com? I just finished the Tri-Aran Angle shawl from there.  It took me awhile and it's sort of thick, I don't know if you like more delicate shawls or just shawls in general.  They have a few though.

That Tri-Aran Angle Shawl is gorgeous, box of purls! Did you post a picture of your finished one? I'd love to see it! Although, I think it would be overwhelming on my 4' 10" frame...

Your shawl is lovely. I like that the fringes are wispy and not all along the edges. I learned how to pick up dropped stiches  and how to deliberately drop stiches to go back fix a mistake from S'NB book, and that alone made it worth every penny. So, is your vow renewal going to be in Hawaii? I'm just guessing from the dress.

I haven't posted a picture yet, I'm planning on borrowing my sister's digital camera to take pictures of a couple of projects I have finished and this one will be one of them.
I don't know if I'll every actually wear the Tri-Aran Angle because I'm not big on shawls but I wanted to make one to say I could....and I'm only about 5'1" so it would be overwhelming on me too.

Thank you! No, our renewals are not in Hawaii- I wish! lol I just like the print - it's kinda timeless...

I look forward to seeing your picture of the shawl!
