Shawls are super awesome to give as gifts but they can be a time tester. I've learned a powerful lesson about starting one of these and that is make sure you make time to work on it. It took about 2 months longer than I had planned because I had it on the backburner for so long, BUT it's done now, just in time for her to not use it bc it's so stinkin' cold here.
So as a side gift, I'm making a couple more things out of some of the yarn left to sort of mix it all together to make it a happy little set. That way when she can't use the shawl, she can use the scarf, hat and mittens. Yay!
