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 :)
