Here is the shawl that took me forever. The pattern is the Cyrcus Rectangular Shawl pattern, a free Ravelry download from Madeline Wardrobe. The pattern was not what I would call easy, but I got through it :D Anyway, my grandma is happy with it and I am almost tempted to take another three months out of my life to knit another one - it would have to be for my mom though because now she wants one too.
I like it best myself worn loosely around my neck as a scarf. The cashmere yarn is so soft!
