Thanks for the compliments! I am so happy that I am redoing it and can't wait to see it at all finished!
I actually found this yarn on clearance at our Beverly's (I think it's only a California chain Craft & Fabric store, much like Micheals) and fell in love with the color immediately, reminds of something Victorian. I was soooo glad when I found that my LYS carried it and was able to get me more in the same dye lot. And the savings on the "clearance" wasn't all the much of a savings when I found out the regular price was only a few cents more!
My daughter actually picked out her own Party Ribbon in Scuba, with pretty blues, greens and a hint of light purple. She is going to make her own Triangle Shawl. I have already asked her if I could borrow it when it was finished!
