Hidcote is finished. I actually finished her on Saturday night, but was hoping to get some good "action shots" before posting.
Well, the photographer and I have not been able to schedule a time to get some good pics of her, so this blocking shot will have to do.
Isn't she pretty? I love it! It is quite large, I was a bit worried it may be too large. But when I wrap it around me it comes down to my knees, and the overall effect is dramatic. It is sooo delicious to wear.

Specs are as follows:
Pattern: Hidcote Shawl by Miriam Felton
Needles: KP Options size 3
Yarn: KP Shadow in the Vineyard colorway. Apx 3 1/2 skeins (can you say Cheap?)
Finished dimensions: About 9 Ft. Across the top edge, and 5 1/2 Ft. From center point to tip.
time to knit: Started late night Dec. 31st, and finished evening of January 20th.

And there you have it! My first FO of 2007, and I could not be more pleased!

With any luck I will have some better pictures tomorrow. =)
