FO: Gathering Leaves Shawl in Sock Yarn

Remember this post? Well, I didn’t have to wait 3 weeks. In about 1 week after I bought the yarn from somebody detash in ravelry, the yarn arrived. Yay!! And it matched with my previous yarns. So, I could happily continue my project. I really was enjoying working with this yarn enormously, and felt sad when it’s over.

After blocking, this shawl is big enough but not as big as my black Garden Path. Too bad I don’t have more skeins. Next time I want to buy 5 skeins of sock yarn to make very big shawl. I love big shawl.

I really like the finish result, and actually it is nicer in real person than in the photo.
