I finished knitting this a long time ago, but only last week finished blocking and sewing in ends. This is the Freya Shawl designed by Renate Haeckler, a free pattern on Ravelry HERE.
The pattern is for a 3/4 circle shaped shawl, but I did fewer repeats to make a half circle so my yarn would last for more rows. I knitted until I ran out of yarn, but I don't remember how many rows short of completing the pattern I was. It came out a good size though, about 28 inches deep after blocking to a lacy effect.
The yarn was hand spun by me on a drop spindle using some slightly variegated Romney roving, about 9 ounces.
