Stage 3 (Warning: Picture heavy post.)

Chatelaine reached Stage 3, completion, last night. I've thoroughly enjoyed this exercise in design and will certainly undertake it again. I grossly underestimated the finished size and could have easily worked one less repeat widthwise and two fewer lengthwise.

It's harder than I thought it would be to part with this shawl. The fact that it will be raffled off to support two good causes for the Ladies of Auxillary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars makes it more special.

1. Operation Uplink which provides phone cards for our service men and women.
2. Cancer aid and research.

I visit regularly just haven't posted. I must tell you I love that shawl. The color is so vibrant. It's a good thing you are doing to help out others.

It's HUGE, it's beautiful! Wow, I was not prepared for this. One rarely sees a shawl in such a vibrant color. Very well done! ;o)

Do you need another Mom, maybe by proxy, step Mom friend from Ravelry, or whatever. Shawl is incredibly beautiful. Nice job.
