Finished Nina shawl !!
I finished the Nina shawl in just over 3 weeks! I had to work really hard. It was a gift for my son's girl friend. I used Berrocco Touche. It's very soft 1/2 cotton and 1/2 modal. I did have to add about 10 -12 inches to make it come out to 60 inches long! Everything else seemed to be in the correct gauge, although I have to confess I didn't swatch. I think it came out very well.
You're right about the length, when you add up the rows knitted by the gauge it only comes out to about 45 inches. I'm just starting mine & wondered which stripes you added to get the 60 inch length.
