Because I've finished it, and it's BEAUTIFUL!!!

So, remember how I was telling everyone about the yarn that dangerpuddle sent me, that I was making into a shawl?

Photobucket

This was where I was up to, last time I was talking about this  project.  The darker yarn is the hand spun and hand dyed yarn from dangerpuddle , and the fluffy yarn is called Veronica, from a range called Sean Sheep, which I think is just the cutest name for yarn!

And today, I finished my beautiful. beautiful shawl, and here it is!

I alternated increasing bands of the two yarns until I ran out of the midnight yarn, then finished with the Veronica.  The edging is a yarn from the same Sean Sheep range, called Cassowary - a deliciously soft and fluffy mix of wool, acrylic and mohair.

You can see the alternating bands a little better in this close-up.

The edging on the shawl makes me feel like a fifties movie star when I put it on!

I just love how it turned out!!

Yep, that's just the yarn - it's an acrylic, with some fluffy strands and narrow ribbon plyed in with it.

But it looks so good next to dangerpuddle's lovely smooth midnight yarn!
