Nothing like finishing at the last minute...

I literally finished this moments before we walked out the door! But I finished in enough time to have hubby snap this quick "action shot". I'm excited about two things:
1. I love this shawl- its so warm and fuzzy, perfect for winter.
2. I actually finished a knitting project in less than several months. I'm so happy to have a finished project! Now I just need to decide what to do next... :)


And my darling brought me these. "Just because"... What a sweetie pie.

How Fantastic you look! :) That picture is just lovely, and your shawl goes beautifully with your skirt!! (What type of fabric is the skirt, btw...it hangs so nicely!) Congratulations on finishing your project! :)

What a beautiful shawl! I love the colour. :) I am determined to learn to knit this winter.

Natalie said...

That's a lovely ensemble! You're really making me want to knit a shawl/wrap.

Serena said...

It's so pretty! Oh-so cuddly and soft and pink and perfect for winter! I've had a shawl on the knitting needles for...well, I've actually forgotten how long it's been.

I LOVE your shirt. Do you mind sharing what brand it is and where you got it?

Congrats on getting your shawl done in time! It's lovely.

Rachel said...

And like everyone else, I LOVE your shawl, and it makes me want to make one... in fact, I have the pattern picked out. ;) What'd you wear it to?

Thanks so much for the sweet comments! Tilly, the skirt is some sort of black silk :) I think :)
And Serena, I bought the shirt at Ann Taylor on their "end of season clearance", so it ended up being about 5$! I just love those sales...
Rachel, I wore it to my great aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary party! It was so much fun looking at all the pictures of their wedding there- I loved the dresses.
