Start date: April 25th
Finish date: April 30th
Pattern: Luna Moth Shawl by Shui Kuen Kozinski
Yarn: Elann Pure Alpaca in Eggplant, 4 skeins
Needles: 4,5mm and 5mm
Finished measurements: 54" along the top, 31" deep
Modifications: none

I used up all 4 skeins and didn't have enough to bind off last 2 scallops. Luckily, the sweater I made for my son in Patons Classic Merino in Purple was almost exact match.

I'd like to thank Shui Kuen for a wonderful pattern and Lisa for hosting this KAL.

Looking forward to everyone's progress and FO's pictures.

You know this one doesn't count for the KAL because you completed it before May 1 - ha ha. Great job. I'm looking forward to your next.

Congratulations on finishing your shawl! It's very beautiful. I'm always amazed when I see before and after blocking pictures of lace projects!

It always amazes me how focused you are with your knitting...I have about a million wip's, which might be why nothing ever actually gets finished...
