Spring Leaves Shawl

I have to say that I'm really pleased with how this turned out. I love the soft cotton yarn and the beautiful color change. I added quite a bit of beads to the bottom which gives the light cotton a little more weight. This took just about a month to knit and if it wasn't for the KAL on ravelry I don't think I would have made it through. There was quite a bit of confusion and ripping on my part, but now I think it was well worth it.
The Yarn : Wolle's yarn creations, color - green ocean 2 - 480 yards. I used it all.
The pattern : Frozen Leaves Shawl.. if you decide to knit this pattern make sure you check the threads on ravelry and knit the re- worked charts.
Size 4 needles. For some reason I thought I was knitting with a size 5 but when I checked it after I finished the shawl it was a size 4. I probably could have used a size 5..
