Dotted rays shawl

I recently made this new shawl for myself called Dotted rays by Stephen West. It's rare when you are able to quantify your knitting project but this shawl basically took me: Season 3 of House of Cards, the entire first season of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a knitting guild meeting, part of a baby show, a bus ride to and from a St Patricks day parade and some march madness basketball games that I wasn't even remotely watching. In conclusion, it look a long time. I enjoyed it though and love the final result though. 
 Here it is in the beginning.

 Here it is all finished.
Here it is as I would wear it, kind of as more of a cowl, than a shawl. It doesn't look quite as bunchy on me as it does on my sick-looking model here. It is very warm, but too bad I will have to box it up soon until fall.
