Oh you are not kidding, Sweets.

Penny said...

That's lovely - you've worked really hard on it.

Dave Hingsburger said...

Um, I think the ability to do something like this means that you are probably some kind of mutant ... back away, don't look her in the eye ... slowly slowly slowly

Dorian and Monte said...

Holy cow, Batman. That is absolutely amazing!! Stunning!!

Carolyn said...

Oh, I am *so* glad you didn't run out of yarn. That is lovely, gorgeous, beautiful, and exquisite.

Kris said...

Stunning! I am very impressed. it almost makes me want to dig out the shawl I am working on...

Bethro said...

You are a rock star. I think your daughter's expression says it all.

Jo said...

Holy Camoley that shawl is immense! (And beautiful as well!) I'm curious how much yardage/meterage (is that even a word?) it used.

Anna said...

(I'm trying to suggest stunned silence here.) What a work of art!!!

Brenda said...

Wow, that is truly amazing!!!!

Gwen said...

Karen S said...

kate said...

You rock. Big time.

And are perhaps slightly mutant as Dave suggests. But in that amazing, ET kind of way.

knititch said...

congratulations. it is lovely. is rheingold the next thing on the needles???

Shan said...

Total weight - 178 grams. Total yardage used - 1958.

Rheingold is the next big knit, but I might have to save it for the New Year since I have a few things that need to be done for Christmas.

FO post for the Cap Shawl coming soon.

Kristine said...

Exquisite.

Annalea said...

First, silence reigned. Then "Woah" involuntarily escaped my lips when I saw your daughter in the background, and the sheer size of the thing hit me.

And I felt heroic for finishing a laceweight version of the Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl with some extra repeats. I'm a wimp. lol

Tabatha said...

WOW!! Absolutely WOW!

Congratulations on finishing! It is amazingly lovely.

WOW!!

Annalea said...

Btw--how would one wear a shawl this size? It would "fit" an 8'3" (99") knitter . . . but aren't you somewhere in the neighborhood of 5'5"? I'm really curious to see this modeled by you. :o)

Susie Hewer said...

Good grief, it's enormous!!!!! It would make a beautiful cover for a circular table over a plain tablecloth to show off the stitches (yes, I know it's a shawl but when it's not in use it would be criminal to hide it away). Brilliant work.
