Echo flower photo shoot

This is my Echo flower shawl, my first shawl in a knit along.

The yarn is 4 ply alpaca , natural white and soft with some Little straw stuck here and there. It was harvested from Fowberry Hera.
 I had 2 hanks of 660 yards in total. After finishing the first hank, I made one more repeat (one more than a shawlette) and then started on the edging. Those nupps are yarn guzzlers so switched to beads and even omitted couple of rows. I was left with 40cm of yarn in the end. Oh the stress of it all..

Very pleased !! :)

    It looks absolutely gorgeous! I'm still waiting to reblock mine, just need to stop wearing it for long enough.
