Your shawl is beautiful! I love that pink color, and it looks like your kitty likes it too :) I'm trying to figure out how big mine will be if I omit a repeat (or more) of chart two . . . looks like if you'd done all 8 repeats you'd have a king-size blanket. I'm working in Zephyr on size 4's . . . and yes, the idea of doing less that the full number of repeats is appealing! Any thoughts?
