Congats on a beautiful FO!

Beautiful! It turned out so lovely.

Looks great! I'm sure your friend will love it!

What? You're giving it away? Lucky friend!

Freecia gave this shawl to one of my yoga buddy. She is slender and elegant in a classic way. When I ask Freecia to make a similar shawl for me, she said, "you won't look good in it, mom." well, I agree. Glad she finished the shawl in a satisfied sigh/smile. Now each time when my friend and I were in the yoga room, this shawl sat quietly on her shoulders, we exchanged a smile that last eternity (or at least 5 seconds). She would make a point to tell me that she worn it to Mt. Shasta, to high school reunion, to women's group. This shawl is like an invisible net, gently and cuddly wrap all 3 of us in a loving & lasting way. Knitters, you are great people!
