Oslo Walk Shawl Debut

The Oslo Walk Shawl has been finished, washed, and blocked for quite some time now but today is the first time I've had it on long enough to get a photograph.

On the whole I quite like it. It's soft, not scratchy, the beads add a nice bit of sparkle, and the non-colour goes well enough with most things, but there is one little detail about the design that I don't care for...

The ends of the shawl end rather bluntly in an unfinished looking way. In these pictures I'm wearing the shawl draped in a way the minimizes that problem, but if I leave the ends of the shawl hanging it is quite obvious. It's an issue that limits the ways I can will wear the shawl so I doubt I'll get much wear from it.
