I have oficially crossed the finish line! My Flower Basket Shawl is drying in the spare bedroom while DH and I have our Valentine's Day dinner. Here's a quick pic before I set the table... Isn't it GAWWWWGEOUS! I ended up doing two extra pattern repeats, and I'm so glad I made that decision. It measures 58" across, and 24" long. Perfect!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone, and keep those needles clicking!

100% Columbian coffee with International Delights french vanilla creamer, and an entire bottle of Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke! Caffeine does a knitter good :)

I figure I knit for 4 hours on Friday, 12 hours on Saturday, 8 hours on Sunday, and 10 hours on Monday. Tuesday I washed, soaked, and blocked, which took about 1 hour. So all together it was a 35 hour job!
