Andrea's Shawl
i really liked the projects on ravelry that used the contrasting color for the border lace. unfortunately, by using the green cashmere/silk for the border, i ran out before finishing the shawl. whoops. i whipped out some double stranded jojoland 100% cashmere that i had leftover from a pair of mittens i made for spicy and finished the stripes with beige. i actually really love how it turned out with the third color.

it's a very small shawl. if i'd had more yarn i would've liked to make it bigger. the shawl is so lovely and soft. i wish i could knit with cashmere every day. these aren't normally colors i would gravitate towards. originally i thought i might give it away but now that it's finished it's definitely staying in my wardrobe.

yay!
