The Gypsy Shawl moves to the Finished Object list

Yesterday afternoon DH and I went to a meeting of our reenactment unit and I got to sit in the back of the room (with another knitter) and knit while they were doing the business end of the meeing. I finished the crochet edging on the shawl and put the fringe on last night. I'm normally not a finge lover but it really adds something to this shawl and looks really good when the shawl is being worn. So my first Koigu project is finished, and I have quite a few things I can wear it with! I have one skein of this color left over so I'm going to try the "neck warmer" pattern that I got free with some of the yarn I bought, it takes only one skein.

Fantastic! Congrats on the finsished shawl! I love the story about the guitar. What a sweetie. My husband is an avid guitar player (Including a 12 string) and we have many "ladies" in our house.
