Since this is my first Mystery KAL, I was really nervous that people would not like the pattern. There were times I regret my decision to publish this as mystery KAL, but I could not do anything about it anymore.
I was very happy that people seems to like the pattern. There are more than 100 projects in Ravelry. For me this number is good enough and considered this Mystery KAL a successful one.
Since the KAL is over, it’s time to reveal the FO. Tadaaaa!

I love making this shawl and as soon as I finished blocking, I immediately planning to make another one, larger one. Too bad, I couldn’t do it because I was out of yarn at that time. I have the yarn now, but I have already in the middle of other project, so I guess I will do it in the future.
Another thing is that originally I designed this shawl without beads, however, somebody asking whether it is possible to put beads. In the end I added beads on the pattern as an optional.
