Long Distance Lace Shawlette COMPLETE!

Drum roll, please!  Stick a fork in it because this shawl is DONE!  We'll go light on commentary and heavy on photos for this post.  I intend this to be a gift for a friend, and so I wanted it to be perfect.  Each time I made a mistake, I tinked back and fixed it.  I am SO excited to give this to aforementioned friend... yay!  Now enough blabber, check this beauty out:









Pattern:  Long-Distance Lace Shawlette by Vickie Howell (Spring/ Summer 2014 Issue of Knit Simple Magazine

Yarn:  Annie Yarn Madison Worsted in color "O'Tealy" (3 skeins/ roughly 600+ yards)

Needles:  Knit Picks Harmony Interchangeables size US 7; 40" cord

Project Bag:  Hogwarts by Slipped Stitch Studios

Notions needed:  Aside from measuring tape and scissors, this pattern does not require stitch markers or anything else (unless you want to count stitches, which I didn't); also blocking supplies

KAL:  I participated in two KALs for this shawl:  the first is Vickie Howell's Stitch.Rock.Love quarterly KAL (you can find more info in her Ravelry group and Facebook groups of the same name); the second was a spring Hufflepuff shawl KAL.
