After washing and blocking, it is REALLY BIG. I know I wanted a big shawl, but the front reaches my ankles. It's still a fantastic wrap though...I'm wearing it as I type. So is Dale, as he just crawled into my lap and under it.
Some lessons I've learned:
1. Try a smaller gauge.
2. Don't need to knit as many rows as it will stretch out due to the weight of the yarn.
3. I could try to smush it in when blocking because truth be told, I did smooth it out and in the process probably helped to stretch it.
Still trying to decide what shawl to start next!
