What a beautiful shawl. Can you take a close-up picture of it? I'd love to see the pattern better.

I bet your sister will be thrilled with this!!

Great job!

Thanks for posting the close-up! I LOVE it!!

Did you spin the yarn yourself? Either store-bought or hand-spun and dyed, this is a real treasure!

I have to confess that I am not a shawl person but I love the colours. It looks very warm and cozy.

I bought this wool....baby Alpaca from Peru!! It was soooo pretty, I couldn't resist. I was gonna do more fringes but decided it looked better just as is. I have to get going on some baby hats and booties....I got a lot of mommies waiting.....
