Alas, no action shot, but here debuts "Rona!"

Up first, fresh off the needles, is "Rona- Blob stage."
Full shot- blocking

The giftee was my sister, Nikki, who gifted one of her first knitting projects (a striped purse for our Mom) this year. I completely forgot to get an action shot, but lets just say I think she was happy and maybe even suprised! (Considering about 18 months ago I sent her the link to the Zephyr colorcard and told her to "pick a color." She picked this, Elderberry, and Fuchia, which I *knew* I couldn't knit with for that long (without color-induced migraines!) so Elderberry it is!)

Specs: Yarn- Laceweight Jaggerspun Zephyr, colorway Elderberry, approximately 100 grams. Pattern, "Rona Shawl" from KnitPicks. Knit on DPN's and Circ's, Clover Bamboo size 3. Started in January 2007, finished December 2007, but marinated for long periods of time while I knit plenty of other FO's! Those last dozen-rounds are KILLLER, each round taking a good 90 minutes!

It's so beautiful, better in person but the pictures are great! I can't wait to find just the right thing to wear it with, I'm thinking something simple like a black turtleneck and grey slacks. It's elegant and very professional looking, I'm so impressed!
