Once upon a time (nearly a year ago, in fact), you all helped me pick out some Mermaid-colored yarn for the 2nd Mystery Shawl knitalong:

And many, many months later, after lots of giving up and modifications of the original edge pattern, the Modified Mermaid Mystery Shawl broke free of the needles and climbed up into the sun to stretch and spread its lace in repose.

At this juncture, I will now insert a witty pun using the word "shawl."

Gee, that SHAWL looks good.

Say it with a crappy southern accent. Get it? Shawl? Sure? Yeah that's all I got.
