YIPPEE IT's DONE

I am so glad my baby shawl is done.
I have been working hard on a long lost UFO and crochet project. Luckily it is a project that I will be gifting very soon. 
Look, it's finished..... And it's beautiful

It took me 3 hours to get round each of the last 14 rows. Yes, I did 14 rounds to use up all the yarn. Why have left overs. That's a lot of crochet.. The plain centre took 3 balls and the outside lacy edge took 3 balls. As I was working on the last round I was wondering if there was enough yarn. I was getting closer to the end and worrying a bit. Yes, there was enough.
Look how much of the ball was left. Not even enough for a pair of mittens so I am one happy nan.
14 rounds of lacy edge took 3 hours each round. Not much left over yarn...

I can't wait to see a little baby girl laying on this.....
On the lavender bush waiting for baby to be born

Linking with SLOW STITCHING SUNDAY even though mine is crochet.
I think it is a great OPAM too.
