Completed - Kouyou Shawl

I finally made my first shawl!
I found the construction really interesting and easy to do.  The lovely triangular shape is made by increasing at the middle and ends of each row.  It was a really well written pattern, very clear and easy to follow.
The lace section took easily three times as long as the stocking stitch section, but I found it pretty interesting!  It's always fun seeing the pattern emerge.

These photos are of the shawl blocking on a towel.  It was incredible how much better it looked after blocking! 

I made this shawl to go with a particular dress.  We are going to Japan at the end of this month for our friend's wedding on the first day of spring.  I had read some articles on what to wear to a Japanese wedding and they all said WEAR A SHAWL!
I think I might have been bitten by the shawl bug!  I enjoyed knitting it SO much, I want to make more now.
