I finally finished knitting a shawl

I had knitted a sweater about four years ago from wool which my friend Helen bought from Wales.  But the sweater turned out to be too big for me (I miscalculated the measurements) so I left it hanging in my cupboard all these years, still in its virgin state.  Last month, I decided to do something about it and unpicked the whole sweater to knit a shawl.  I browsed the internet and was surprised to find many free knitting patterns and finally chose the Lacey Evening Wrap  pattern for my shawl.  It was easy to knit and it took me about a month to complete.  Here’s the finished product.
