Flower Basket Shawl finished! Pics soon...

Ok, I promise to post pics really soon, but IT'S DONE. I had to redo the bindoff three times to get the right amount of stretch, and I have to fix one dropped stitch, but the Cursed Shawl is finished.

The bindoff: After trying size 13 needles (still too tight), I wound up getting out a crochet needle the same size as the needles used for the shawl (size 10), and adding one crochet stitch between each bound-off stitch. That worked.

And, being a glutton for punishment, I'm now thinking about doing another shawl, this time of my own design, using a Pine Tree Lace design. Yeah, I really AM insane. But we knew this.
