First FO of 2011

I cast on for Stephen West's Pogona on January 4th and finished it on January 12th - what can I say it was an addictive pattern to knit. I used Auraucania Itata which I got on sale at Webs and found this slightly variegated yarn to be perfect for this pattern. The pattern itself is brilliantly written with 20 stitch markers placed through it to let you know when to go to the next section...it became an almost rythmic knit.

I've included a photo below of the shawl in blocking - it gives you an idea of the construction. I might just have to make another one!
