My first shawl

This is my nearly-finished Elise shawl, made from a ball of Kureyon sock yarn. In fact, it's a ball that a lady brought back to the shop, disappointed that she couldn't get it to cast on without falling apart... Luckily it hasn't fallen apart for me altho', like all the Noros, it's a bit thick and thin. Full of rascally character, I like to think.

The lovely Rachel stood beside me for about an hour last Saturday morning (thank you, Rachel!) while I started this over and over again till, by Jove, I'd got it... Possibly full of errors obvious to a more discerning eye than mine, but who cares, it's clearly a shawl, and it's clearly quite pretty. That'll do for me.
