FO: Under da Sea, Little Mermaid Shawl

I took a detour on the way home to the yarn store to look around.
I walked in....
Then I saw it....
I HAD to have it....it SPOKE to me.

It reminded me of a mermaid and of the sea. 

I used the same pattern that I used for Jenn's Gone Banana's, see last post.
It looks more green in this pic...

...but this outside picture give you a better idea on the true colors.

Pre Blocking- 45' x 22' inches
I used almost EVERY bit of the yarn. There is a golf ball left of yarn.

So here I am soaking this shawl...
I thought for sure I was going to pull this out 
dnd there would be no color left on the fiber.

But alas....it's all good LOL

Final measurements: 56' x 30'
By blocking I gained several inches to the shawl.
