LEAVES OF GRASS




i joined a KAL with girls in sheep clothing and the knit was jared flood's 
leaves of grass.
i think this has been the biggest knitting project i have ever undertaken !
i love it !
however my choice of yarn will make this knit not a shawl but a wonderful pi  blanket...
and that is fine with me :)
this project has taught me many lesson...
perseverance
how to read a chart
lace knitting
if one wants to knit a shawl, don't use an arran weight yarn
and above all 
keep on knitting till the project is done.
i am almost there !

Eileen this is beautiful. I love that you made it with Aran yarn. I think this pattern is quite large for a shawl but I love it as a blanket!
