FO: "Sea, Surf & Salt Air" Shawl
Finally D-O-N-E. Pattern taken from the Mitered Crosses Blanket-for Japan. Modified mine to form a "shawl", and will prolly use it for a lapghan at air-conditioned meetings.

54" across the widest part, 39" tall. The overall size and configuration was based on how much yarn I had. I just kept working til the yarn ran dry. I even had to use some yarn off the end of this scarf, which I never liked much but it matches this hat. Sigh. I like the hat.

Here are my Rav notes for the shawl. BTW: it does wrap around my shoulders perfectly. Might look too small, but it's not. I could put an applied i-cord binding on the edges, maybe in a charcoal black tweed, or somethin'...but for now I'm callin' it done!

Elegant design and layout for the lapghan in wonderfully subtle colors. Just beautiful and unusual, again!

Just wonderful. You have covered our God's spectrum of colors I think for this old earth between this and the other blanket. Magnificent.
