I have finished the Budding Easter Shawl that I taught in a lace knitting class I gave. The same little shawl I've knit a couple of times now.
Here are the shawl facts ...
Shawl #5 (total so far this year: 2011)
Name: Easter Budding Shawl
Pattern: Budding Shawlette by Joyce (YuLian) Yu
Yarn: 1 skein Cascade Heritage sock yarn (I used every bit and ran out 2 rows before finish, so I used a few yards of Heritage solid Pink to finish last row & bind off.) Also used clear crystal beads and ran out of those so finished up with the last row of stems in olive green. But I doubt you would notice without me telling you. Ha.
Yardage used: 1 skein = 437.0 yards (399.6m) plus a few yards more of pink to finish.
Started: March 20, 2011
Finished: April 10, 2011
Finished Size: 60” wide x 29” long

And you can hardly tell the edge is in a different yarn can you? Or at least it looks like I did it on purpose. Which I did because I was too lazy to rip back and end with one less pattern repeat.
I'm always trying to stay one step ahead of my knitting flubs! BTW, after taking those pictures I couldn't take the wind and my windblown-fly-away hair anymore. So I went out and got a haircut. A whole new Do!!
Now maybe I can knit outside without my hair getting into my eyes!
