Oh, Sharon! It is beautiful! And you look lovely in it. Blue is definitely your color.
:-)

... and I can't believe you counted the stitches! what a daunting task knowing how many you were going to have to cast off...
My mishaps of late seem to be sweaters getting caught in velcro on items that I otherwise wouldn't have noticed as having velcro. The item I love the most and am most careful with is the one that will meet some horrible fate and is doomed to quickly look like crap.

But items are to be used and loved. No one will admire or appreciate it more than you at this time. ENJOY IT!

Sorry to tell you I haven't yet snagged my shawls. Now watch me snag them the next time!
But the shawl is gorgeous! I just started a garter/eyelet wrap called As You Like It from Jane Campbell. She's only an hour away from us in Indiana. Using Socks that Rock and it's turning out so nice.

Norma

That is a wonderful color for you.

I have no shawl wisdom, as I don't wear shawls. My thing would be just keeping it on my shoulders in the first place. Unless I were just wearing it sitting down, I'd be forever dropping it, I fear. Not practical for modern active living is my thought.

Kellie

Yay it's done! So pretty too! Some day, I will learn lace knitting. :o)

Vera

Your shwal is beautiful, and worth the extra time and effort on the ruffle.

It looked even prettier in person last Wednesday. It usually only takes me seconds to snag any FO..you aren't alone. As far as a sorority for the unsnagged? Trust me, you don't want to be one of THOSE girls ;)

Bron

Ahhhh...the 5 hours was SO worth it! It's lovely. :)

Laura

No advice on a snag-free life from me - I haven't had the experience or shawl wearage yet. But I'm looking forward to knowing if there are any suggestions from the Sisterhood!

Looks just LOVELY and all the castoff hours were well worth the effort. :)

Tam

Love the shawl! Those colors are definitely YOU! And thanks for the advice about drinking more water. I always need to be reminded of that!

Julia

Ooooh, very pretty! You absolutely glow wearing that. The snagging thing gets me too. I think I'm too tomboy for some fashions, but I wear them anyway, they just suffer more than they would on someone who is a bit, er, tamer and more cautious. Aw hell, it's only yarn, just wear it! 5 (five)hours you say? Hmmm.

Lorette

That is very lovely! You're not alone in the snag thing. I still have a snagged spot in my Birch shawl that I haven't figured out how to fix. Of course, though I save every remnant of yarn I've ever used, for some reason I didn't for the yarn for that one.

Emy

It happens all the time so I tend to be on *high-alert* whenever I wear those delicate items :)

monica

It's lovely!! Yikes 5 hours for the bind-off. It's those evil but pretty ruffles.

LynnH

You look beautiful in the shawl.

I, too, snag shawls but not sweaters. What is that about, anyway?

Gina

I wondered about this very thing as I got into my car this morning and snagged my Clapotis with my handbag's buckle! FIVE HOURS for binding off -- that sounds worse than delivering a baby. Kudos! The shawl is fantastic! Aren't you just a bit glad for this crappy weather?

marti

you have done yourself proud. it is absolutely lovely.

Maple

'morning, Sharon. This shawl is lovely. Think that we are going to have sun today. Yea!

Karen

Yikes, 5 hours to nind off! Wow. It really is beautiful though so obviously it was worth all that work. I haven't snagged any of my shawls yet. It made me cringe just reading that. I will be very paranoid when I wear Icarus the first time I'm sure. I think the yarn would break rather than snag with that.

ann

beautiful Sharon --- I admire your perserverence during that never ending bind off!
