It is really done

I had my occasional doubts about this bottoms up shawl. I thought for awhile that I had made a big mistake and would have to knit extra rows to fix it. I was wrong!
Penny Schumers Thistle in Bloom shawl came out beautifully. I used up 640 meters of fingering weight yarn and I love the size. Yesterday I was trying it on before blocking and it was big. I made it to keep off  the indoor chill this summer at knit night.
I chose the yarn and pattern to celebrate Spring.  I call it My Organic Lawn in Spring and I think I  got the look I wanted.
This is a great pattern. Yes, I was a little daunted with it being bottoms up, but it all turned out well and I am happy with my new shawl.
