I love this shawl, and it makes a great gift for a mom breasting a baby. The spaces aren't that see through.

You did a great job, and yes, your hair is quite pretty. Why is it that those of us with straight hair want curls and those with curls want straight hair?

I grew up absolutely hating my hair...even into adulthood. But, I think that as I've aged, my hormones have affected stuff in my body, including the way my hair dries. My daughter has my same hair, only it's in the more frizzy state right now. I tell her to be patient. When she gets older, it will relax. As of now, she gets up at 5am to straighten it before school.

Oh well. I like to sleep as long as I can.

Anyhoo...thank you for the positive comments. I absolutely cannot wait to take it to my next prayer shawl ministry meeting!!

Nathalie, the shawl is just beautiful! I love the colorway, too.

I'm totally with you about the hair. I have natural curls also and I love living in the hot humid weather. Just shake head and go.
