Well I haven't been around lately due to testing this shawl for Katchkan (Kathy) over at Crochetville.  I have been busily trying to get this done in the time frame that Kathy gave and finally got it completed tonight.  I have been working on this since 3/7/06 and got distracted here and there and so this took longer than usual to finish.  I used a size 6 steel hook and size 10 thread in a lilac.  Brittany is doing a good job of holding it out although her arms were getting tired she said.
