The Knitting is Done

After ripping back two rows of the last chart and attempting to finish I found that I still didn't have enough yarn. I bought a skein of a different dye lot that to my eye matches perfectly. The knitting was finished last night. Here is the shawl before blocking.
It measures 38" across and 19" from the edge to the point. After a trip to the store for T-pins I'll get this baby blocked. I'm thinking of knitting another of this pattern in a laceweight alpaca. I'll probably add more repeats of the budding lace chart to create a larger shawl. Now I just have to decide what color to make it. I want something a little brighter after working on such a dark color. (The color in this picture is brighter than the actual navy.)
