FO: Queen of Hearts Shawl

Started September ’06, finally finished!
Pattern: Queen of Hearts
Yarn: Jojoland Melody, probably color Y09. A bit under 5 balls.
Needles: 3.75mm (US 5) Crystal Palace bamboo circs

I think when I started this, I didn’t intend to make it so big. But since I brought it on the trip with me, I just kept knitting, not wanting to have to sit down and figure out how to finish the shawl. Oh yes – about a year ago, I thought I was close to finishing the shawl, so I gave the pattern to a friend. Then I didn’t knit on it for a year. Oops. I have no idea if how I finished the shawl matches what the pattern calls for, but it doesn’t really matter, does it?

Finished size is “big-ass”. 40″ deep, or about 80″ across. Big and cozy? The shrubs seemed to enjoy it.

Next stop: adding yarn stash to ravelry. I will have partial yarn pr0n from the trip for the next post, next year.
