Ta da!!! It is done. Every since I started knitting again I have wanted to do one of this and it is finally done. Thanks to a good friend for help along the way and guidance in blocking I think it came out just right. It did not even take very long to make. I was very worried that the fine yarn would cause trouble for my hands but it was so small and light that it was great.
And I am very much looking forward to wearing it to shul for Shavuot.
