Just a short post today to show off the completed and blocked Homespun shawl. I think it came out really well. This picture shows its color quite nicely.
I hope it will retain it's shape when she washes it. The color is called Prairie and I love the way it striped so nicely. Once it was blocked, it's definitely a nice size, although I'd still add at least one more pattern repeat if it was for me. I sure hope she likes it AND uses it! I think it will be nice for her to wear in the office when she's doing paperwork for her business.
Oh, one more thing before I go get some work done to pay for more yarn. . . Here's the progress on the purple Spring shawl. That's just over one skein of the Debbie Bliss Cathay yarn. Behind it is the completed and blocked test version I did in Rowan All Seasons Cotton. The Rowan yarn is a bit bulkier than the Debbie Bliss. I think when this is blocked, it's going to look really, really nice. :)
