Fern and Thistle shawl

I just finished the Fern and Thistle shawl last weekend. I was scared to run out of yarn when I bought the wool, and now I have a whole unused skein to add to my yarn stash. (like I really need any more in this house, LOL)
It was fairly easy to knit. Now it's on to something new to start on my needles.

That is quite lovely, Jim. I can totally see knitting that for a present. Is it your pattern, or did you find it somewhere? Congratulations on a great bit of knitting.

Thanks for all the compliments.
It's from a book titled, "Wrapped in Lace - Knitted Heirlooms from Around the World", by Margaret Stove. I won the book in last year's Maryland State Fair, and thought it would be nice to enter a shawl from that book in this year's fair. Funny thing is, when I dropped the shawl off last week, the woman who took the shawl and information knew immediately that it was from that book. When I go to the fair today, I'll find out if I won a ribbon for the shawl and the bedspread.

I hope you won a ribbon for those great works of craftsmanship. Definitely deserved.
