My Seaweed on the Beach is finished ...

It's a shawlette rather than a full size shawl because I used fingering weight yarn instead of lace weight and didn't change the size of the needle because I wanted the shawlette size and fingered this is how I could do it. Then I discovered that I loved this pattern called StellaLuna so much, I've decided I want to make it full size in a lace weight yarn as well. Can't say I repeat too many patterns more than once but on occasion I come across one that I will (such as the Budding Shawlette and the Boneyard).

Of course the yarn I used for the Seaweed has something to do with how much I love this little shawl ...

Something about the color appeals to me as well ... hence the name,
Seaweed on the Beach. And that's with a smile on my face ...

It looks beautiful! I've been looking at some shawl patterns and thinking about trying one. I've got a pattern picked out, and think I might have the yarn, though it would probably only be enough for a small shawl (not totally sure). Haven't started it yet, and not sure when I'll start, but I'm giving it thought, lol.
