Ok, here's the long awaited shawl.
It's a beaut isn't it! The other 3 are the same pattern. One made of the same yarn, but in purples and reds. One is made of kidsilk yarn and that one was way to big, so it has to be folded in half and the pattern on the back is lost, but it's so soft and warm that it makes up for it. The last one is made of a green, black, and metallic gold yarn; definitely appropriate for a night of barhopping in the city.
Don't have any pictures of the mittens yet, I'll take one when the first one is finished. 5 more rows then I start decreasing for the top and then I have to figure out this whole thumb thing! Should be fun and hopefully not much longer.
