Lovely Leaves Shawl - Complete!

I'm so excited to have finally completed my first (actual) shawl. I've spent a couple months on this project - learning the anatomy of a shawl, what yarn is best for it, designing a pattern for the shawl, etc. It has been a long and sometimes frustrating process - for example, the first batch of yarn I used wasn't best suited for the project. Then, the first run through of the shawl pattern turned out to be too short and small to be considered a shawl. The final pattern is on Raverly and is also featured in my Portfolio page.
