Finally finished!

It's too long for me to put it up gracefully, so I had to fold it in half and display in M...

Ready to be sent

After 3 weeks of knitting (about 15 days of actual knitting, average 1~2 repeats a day), the revised Kimono Shawl/lace scarf is finally finished!! Usually it needn't take that long but as the twins in my belly grow so quickly, we get tired quite often.
Grignasco Bambi yarn is nice to knit and even nicer after wet blocking! It turned much softer and fluffier to the touch! Definitely a good choice for scarves and shawls, or any other kind of lace project.
The scarf is about 77 inches long, I've never knitted such long scarf before except the Icarus Shawl, but the yarn used was heavier and also the needle size larger then the original pattern...
Anyway, I will send it tomorrow and I really hope that my pal likes it, at least the three of us tried our best!
