It was my first shawl. I learned a new skill: Garter tab.
My needles were too small so the stitches got all scrunched together --that was the only bummer part of this project and it was all my fault.
I am a little unsure how to wear a shawl to my liking, but I figured out one way to tie it. I hope the recipient finds a groove with it too. She is a dear friend and it is a big birthday for her. I love knitting for people, because I literally think of them while I knit each stitch.
