One thing ends, another begins

I have lots of free time to knit these days, so I finished the shrug for Mummy quite quickly, and immediately got to work on a shawl I've been anticipating for a while.

The shrug seems like a pretty good success. I haven't blocked it at all yet, because I think it will grow when it hits the water, and I don't want it to be too big for my Mom.

The shawl is called Hilton Head, and it is quite simple. There lace edging is garter based, and then there's a growing section of stockinette, and the whole thing is knit as one piece.

I weighed out the yarn to find the center of the skein, and when I get to the center (or if it seems long enough before that) I will begin decreases.
