Flower Basket Shawl

I finished it! Presenting the Flower Basket Shawl from the Fall 2004 issue of Interweave Knits. My eye was on this for a long time but it wasn't until I finished spinning this laceweight alpaca that I knew the time was right.
The pattern calls for a laceweight yarn held double but I used it single and knit for 10 repeats instead of the 7 called for in the pattern.

Ta Da!

And yes, yes I did choose my outfit so that I could wear the shawl today.

Very pretty and the outfit shows it off well. I think I am the only knitter who could not for the life of me figure out the allegedly simple FBS - I had to frog my attempts.
