A shawl of another color

Eva's Shawl
i plugged away at my sister-in-law's shawl when i had spare moments, and before i knew it i was done.

I didn't do the pretty edging because i ran out of yarn. i only had about a yard leftover.

this is my gay bat pose.

i'm partial to the scarf look myself.

the shawl is light as a feather and i really like how the pattern worked with the yarn. i was very happy using a singles yarn for a lacy shawl. the handspun seems strong enough and it blocked beautifully. i hope my sister-in-law likes it!

ETA: i forgot to add that this pattern is the easiest shawl in the history of ever. so if you like crochet and lace shawls but want something that doesn't require too much brainpower, go for it.

  1. It's gorgeous! Thanks for getting my attention to this pattern, I think I have just the yarn for it. This one is so pretty with the light as a feather look, yet the colours are so strong. I love it

  2. Very pretty! I do prefer the scarf look too. Not a big shawl fan. I'm only 30. It's not shawl time yet.
