FO: Skywalker Shawl

This post contains affiliate links...  more yarn money for me!

Who is in love with my gorgeous Skywalker shawl??  I knit this as a project in Laura Nelkin's Craftsy class, Mastering Lace Shawls.  It is a really fun class -- Laura is a joy to knit along with and I love this shawl - you get a chance to practice a lot of different techniques.

Here is the shawl on the blocking board:
