Pattern is http://http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/brandywine-shawl
Yarn is lionbrand fishersmans wool dyed with coffee then overdyed with a weak brown food colouring


The shawl is wonderful. When making this shawl I thought of the one Ma always wore on Little House and I wanted one large and comfy. It turned out about 80x60 in

Oh my...that is so pretty!

I used Fishermen's Wool for an afghan, so I know how warm it is! What a wonderful treat for yourself!

Wonderful job!!

Well, I'll say it again. Beautiful!!!!

Never thought I'd like a brown shawl, but that is gorgeous.

Thank you all! I don't usually like brown either, but this is a warm rust colour
