FO: Pretty as a Peacock

I finally finished the Pretty as a Peacock shawl. Yesterday I washed and blocked it.


This shawl didn't take very long to knit. It's a lovely easy pattern and a pleasure to knit.




I knitted this in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5 ply in Plum using 3.5mm Knit Picks Options. If I were to knit this again in 5 ply I would use larger needles for a lacier look.

And the lucky recipient? My sister-in-law in South Africa. But she will have to wait until February before she gets it.
