Pictures say more than a thousand words. So here is my finished Ulmus:
I love this shawl. It's beautiful! And as always with Kirsten's patterns, I'll be making another one soon. One is just not enough. Part of the fun is to pick out the yarn.
I would have run out of the light green yarn, so I started to add a slightly darker version of the same brand at the end.
This is the largest version of the shawl as givin in the pattern. My favorite part was the leaf edge. The main body got a little boring (eyes started to glaze over), but the prize of the edge border ahead kept me going. It's a well written, gorgeous pattern.

I love the little flecks of blue in this shawl. By the way, after I discovered what Ulmus meant, I was even happier with my color choice.
