The Finish Line

I've reached the finish line and I'm officially a Ravelete. I had my doubts, but my Swallowtail Shawl is done! I've been on the Podium and I've gotten my medal. It took fourteen days from start to finish, I think that may be a World Record, at least for me. Mr Truck has been alternately cheering me on and teasing me. He swears he's finished an afghan for an elephant on very little needles before I finished my shawl, but he has no pictures to prove it.

Here it is before blocking
