I psyched myself up to do this in amongst other projects, as I have plenty of time (14 months from when I started). But it all went quite swimmingly and took 3 weeks of just pottering with it. It did take 1 and 3/4 hours to do the one row that had 216 beads! But I lived dangerously - no markers and no lifelines ... but no disasters either.

I bought 6 50g balls of Woolly 4ply (fingering) baby merino, and I have 2.75 balls left over. Her colour scheme is dark blue and coral - I couldn't find the right shade of coral anywhere. I imported two lots - one was the perfect colour, but too small to string and the other was too dark. So the beads at the top edge are more apricot than coral - but she is happy. I'm pretty chuffed!

The pattern was really easy to follow and is found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/waxwing-shawl

On the blocking boards - oops - plus toes!
