My first "real" knitting project

So this is my first knitting project that is not a scarf or washcloth "Honest Warmth" shawl made with Debbie Bliss SoHo #03 The thick/thin yarn makes for a more interesting looking shawl since it's pretty much straight knitting...Thanks for looking

This is laid out on my king size bed, it almost reaches across at the longest point after blocking


and a bad pic of myself wearing it since when I posted the pics on FB people thought it was a bikini bottom!

Love it! A garter stitch shawl was my first last January. Warning, they are addicting!
