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:
I started knitting it on some priceless handmade wooden needles crafted by yaya. Here's the little guy just starting to spread out:
After this point it was pretty slow going:
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.
And see? It works like I assume a shawl is supposed to!
