I love everything about this shawl — the pattern, the yarn, the color, the drape of the fabric — everything!  Originally I had intended to gift this for Christmas.  I know I can’t keep every shawl I make.  🙂  This one will be hard to give up.

One more picture — just ’cause.

A note about the color — the shawl looks pretty pink in these photos.  I tried but could not get the camera to pick up the colors properly.  The archangel color is darker with a mix of gorgeous colors.  Check this post for a much more accurate color picture.

The lawn and gardens are getting a much needed soak this weekend.  I don’t mind at all.  Rain outside means more time to knit and stitch inside.  😉  Hope you’re enjoying your weekend.
