Drum roll please.....

It's done! It's done! It's done!
(Can you tell I am excited about that?)
20 days from start to finish..Yeah, I may be a little crazy.
Not only am I done..But this baby turned out massive!

It measures 108" (that's 9 Ft) across the top..And 65" (about 5 1/2 Ft) from tip to tip. I knew it was going to be big considering I had to order more yarn. =)

OK, now I get to swatch for the Forest Path stole. =) I told you I was crazy!
If you want to hear more about my Hidcote adventure..You can visit my blog..I will update it tomorrow with LOT's more pics and maybe some model shots. =)
Keep up the good work..The results are breathtaking.
Miriam really out did herself with this amazing pattern..It's everything you think it is going to be, and then some!

Hi all,
I have been asked a couple times why my shawl ended up so big. =)
It's 'cuz I am a very loose knitter, I did not swatch, and I did it on size 3 needles.
Usually when I do a pattern I need to go down a size or 2 on the recommended needle size.
I thought what the heck, and just went with the 3's on this ...which resulted in a much larger and more "open" shawl.
