Fan Shawl

I know I keep saying the same things but I love knitting shawls and I love working in modular knitting.
I think I like modules because it gives me a sense of completion . there is a certain satisfaction and good feeling when you finish a module even though the project is far from completed. I also find that it keeps my attention more because it isn't just knitting back and forth. I knit this shawl using Petals Sock yarn color Blueberry which is  a a combinations of shades of blue denim
I have posted more information about some changes that I made to this free pattern on my Ravelry page
