Challenge: Shawl 8/52

As I mentioned in my last post I've modified this pattern a bit. I added an extra 15 centre lace repeats in an attempt to make it longer. This resulted in a total of 21 TARDIS repeats. I'm pretty happy with the length (72") but could be happier with the depth (15") I probably won't wear it much as a traditional shawl because it just doesn't sit right on me. I'll probably end up wearing it like this:

Or if I'm wearing a coat, a combination of both. 

I replaced the bobbles with beads because it makes it look like the TARDIS light is on which I like. I don't really know about the colour. I'm not a big fan of blue on me but that may be because i just don't wear a lot of blue. 

It's all worth it (even if it looks horrible on me) for the TARDIS
