My shawl is finished.
I used a cotton 8 ply yarn to knit this. The pattern is basic just cast on 2 stitches and increase a stitch at the start of every 2nd row until it reaches a width your happy with then decrease a stitch at the start of every 2nd row until you have 2 stitches and cast off. Its all Garter stitch using circular needles. I was inspired to knit after seeing a similar one Rhonda Hetzel made. Mine comes to a point where as hers had wider back.
This shawl has taken me about 6 weeks or so to do. Most of it was done of an evening in front of the tv. I found it really relaxing.
