The finish line

I pushed myself through the finish line last night, and the modified Fina Hyrnan was born. Here she is, stretching her leafy wings on the floor, feeling all pretty:

See the part with the small leaves? That's the part I added to make the scarf bigger. Now it measures 70 cm length wise, 140 cm sideways.

It was a bit of a stressful knit because of the size issue, and then I wasn't sure how the added border was going to work. And those last few looooong rows were torture... but I like the end result, it turned out ok, I think:

Pattern: modified Fina Hyrnan from Three-cornered and Long Shawls
Needles: 3.5 mm Knitpicks circulars
Yarn: Color Your Own from Knitpicks (seems like they changed the name to "Bare")
Size: 70 cm x 140 cm

Lovely colour! The colourchanges looks so smooth, and the used colors are beautiful. I think the added border works well

It looks beautiful, and I agree with maud, the color is very nice.

Päädyin taas tänne tutkailemaan mitä olet saanut aikaan ja kyllähän sitä aikaansaannoksia oli. Mutta nää huivit kyllä on mun ehdottomia lemppareita. Varsinkin tää on aivan ihana!
Terkkuja ankean sateisesta ja pimeästä Suomesta!
