Nine... so fine!

I finally got some decent pics of Shawl Number Nine!Pattern is Zetor - I do love this pattern. It looks great and is easily customizable to any size. This is the second Zetor I've done - but like the first, I won't be keeping it. This one is going into the Christmas box. So yeah, there will be another Zetor in my future eventually - one just for me.The yarn is Dream in Colour Starry in Gothic Rose. Colour is gorgeous, sparklies are awesome (though hard to photograph) - I just wish it was softer.But all in all - the result is a pretty shawl - and that's what matters. This one is a good size too - 60 inches wide (admittedly, I blocked it within an inch of its life). I used a 5mm needle and almost all the yarn (450 yards). There is just enough left to add a square to the crackghan.

Very nice. There's something very satisfying about blocking aggressively!
