It’s been ages since I’ve had a Finished Object in the needlework realm.

Today, I wove the ends in on a shawl I crocheted last week.  It’s for a family member going through a battle with the dreaded, evil C-Monster.  I can’t be there to hug her in person, so I’m mailing her a long-distance hug.

Pattern: One-Ball Half-Moon Shawl by Lion Brand
Yarn: Loops & Threads Country Loom
Hook: N (10.5 mm)
Pattern modifications: I left off the border after running out of yarn.

I chose acrylic yarn for this project, because it’s fluffy, soft, and (most importantly) completely machine washable and dryable.  I figure the last thing you need to deal with when you’re going through cancer care is wondering how to care for a gift.  It was a very fast crochet (2 evenings), especially with the bulky yarn and huge hook.
