Didn't you know us top models don't get out of our beds for anything less than £10,000 a day?

Ok, here's the lowdown on Kiri. Thanks for the comments and inquisitiveness so far.
I got the pattern from the sidebar of Polly's blog All Tangled Up . Thank you so much Polly.
I used just short of three balls of Orkney Angora St. Magnus D.K., which is a blend of 50% angora 50% lambswool and is as soft as a baby's bottom. Each ball has 200m of yarn and I purchased mine from K1 yarns which now does mail order, although I bought mine in person. I am really happy with the yarn and have cast on all two stitches for the Flowerbasket Shawl in the olive green shade. This shawl here was done in shade #20, Magenta, which is a very KEDkrafty blog template colour.
I used a 5mm circ for detail hounds and my shawl ended up as 174cm wingspan (just lightly stretched), 75cm from neck to point and 393 stitches total along the diagonals.
I can't imagine that I have missed any relevant details, but no doubt you will surprise me. Fire away.....
It is very snugtastic and although I had a couple of tedious days around the 300 st mark,
I LOVE IT!
