A Romantic Shawl

I just love it when something works out like I imagined it.  This shawl did not disappoint me.
Even though I found I'd made a mistake halfway through and had to rip out seven rows, I still loved it.
Even when I got to the end, (when you automatically start hooking at warp speed because you're almost done, and you just want to be finished, but then you have to make all these treble bobbles, which can't be done quickly no matter how hard you try, especially with fingering weight yarn because you might as well be using dental floss), and I was forced to sloooow way down, I still loved it.  That pretty edging, so worth it.  The yarn morphed from a shawl to a Romantic Shawl. 
I can't wait to wear it.

Pattern:  Belle Epoque
Yarn: Malabrigo "eggplant",  Madelinetosh merino light "calligraphy"
Hook: H
