Nearly done

This was started day after MSWF four weeks ago. It could have been finished in a couple of days, but then there was a week in Edinburgh, Scotland, and a long weekend of camping in Harrisonburg, Va. I spent the whole day Sunday doing the remaining 50 percent of the shawl and I have a sore back today.

Yarn used was Peace Fleece's Moscow Magic Pink, a tweedy DK sport weight spun with 30 percent mohair and 70 percent wool. The 7-foot triangle used up an entire skein of 350 yards length (4 oz.). It looks very plain so I'm adding inlay, echoeing the colors of the tweed bits.

The inlay work, using Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride worsted in Limeade, Aztec Turquoise and Regal Purple. I'm also adding Lotus Pink and Fushia.

The fringe.
