WIP - Fiber Trends Flower Basket shawl

So, here's my 3rd shawl for the cancer centre at our local hospital. I'm using a gorgeous DK yarn from an Aussie company called Heirloom in periwinkle. It's machine washable, which is a good thing! I started on 6/18 and have completed 13 repeats. I've got about 350 stitches on the needles now and I'll tell ya, when you make a mistake and have to rip out a couple rows, it's a pain in the butt! I was zipping along at first, but now, I can only crank out a few rows a day. But, with vacation time coming this weekend and next week, I'll be able to finish it and move on to a simpler project. I think alternating simple/complex projects is the way to go!
