Homemade Holiday 2011 -Week Two

Another Christmas present to share this week.

I finally got Grandma's shawl blocked.  It's much finer looking than the one in the pattern, but I like it a lot.  I did change the edging, I just didn't like the way the original one was working.  But that's the beauty of knitting, you don't have to follow ALL the directions for it to turn out.  I used a ball of the Misti Alpaca hand paint sock wool.  I know what you are thinking "but it has alpaca", it'll be ok because Grandma lives in a turtle neck and sweatshirt from September to July.  This shawl will never actually touch skin  :)
