First blocking took quiet some time. I had to redo the edging to put the 13th Nova edging into the middle, otherwise the edging would have looked not equal. First I wanted not to block the edging, what left me not happy. So I decided to block each of them in a round way. Now I am happy with the way they look - a Little bit like closed eyelids. I am very satiesfied with the outcome - Big Thanks to Laura :-)

... even though the wool I used is not the right material to do such a delicate shawl - I will use this shawl more likely in winter and would not recommend this yarn. But nevertheless I had great fun doing this one ... Next one (most probably Clarus) I will use a Bluefaced Leicester / Silk yarn, which will be sooooo much softer in feel! Maybe I will do another skywalker too.

I think your shawl turned out to be absolutely beautiful. I bet it will be wonderfully warm to wear in fall and winter. I do love the color of the yarn you used, it does not detract at all from the patternn. Thank you for sharing your project!
