Finished and loved
I finished this gradient shawl over 2 weeks ago, and unpinned it when I was madly packing to go back to Michigan. I have worn it quite a bit since then, and garnered lots of compliments. As always, I have a hard time photographing by myself, so the beauty of the shawl is lost a bit. But, here she is, all with my own handspun concoction, so truly a one-of-a-kind.
Here is a bit of the history. First the hand dyed rovings, a blue to green gradient, plyed with “Under the Sea” dyebreak:
Then the spun yarn:
And caked up!
And finally finished!
Notice the Magnolia tree almost ready to bloom, in mid-March! Crazy weather, I hope it doesn’t get cold and freeze the blossoms.
As always, I need a model, but I love it!
