Kimono Shawl - chapter two

So I finished the kimono shawl. Not today, not yesterday - nope, it was last Wednesday. I just haven't had the time to tell you all about it. It was fairly easy to knit, but as always when I'm knitting something so easy and relaxing that you can eat, go for a cruise on ravelry, watch tv, etc. all at once - well, at some point I stop paying attention to the pattern and I tend to notice this a weeee bit too late :) Oh well - at least I always take the time to fix my 'mess ups'.

Okay - here it is....


I know it's a bit dark... unfortunately I can't control the sun.... yet.

Tak skal du ha', Else - jeg er også selv ret godt tilfreds :)

Opskriften er i en bog om sjaler, der hedder Folk Shawls - jeg købte den på ebay for næsten ingen penge. Kig evt. i mit bibliotek på ravelry :)
