    Beautiful! Nice touch to add beads to the fringe, I bet they add some weight to make the shawl hang nicely. Very creative! :)

    It's gorgeous that long. And you finished it for the Olympics? Wow! How much knitting time per day did it take?

    LOL, sorry guys, but it is a Kettle One Martini...
    sorry Donni, but it was a Friday night and Merlot just wasnt' on the agenda!
    thanks for the complements. It is a little funky taken against my red dining room wall, but I was looking for an area that wouldn't show off house clutter, and that was it.
