FO: My Kind of Summer Shawl

Do you remember that I said that I had knit up a new shawl over the summer?  I just haven't got around to showing you the photographs and telling you about it, it's the story of my blogging life.  I have plenty of ideas (especially in the middle of the night!) but life just gets...
