I am showing you the best shots I consider shows you the delightful and playful characteristics of this shawl. It is modern, yet it has enough lace to keep you busy and some challenges along the way. I find it is versatile enough that you can wear it as a scarf if you so desire. I used almost 100 grams of Knit Picks overspun DK/Sport yarn and it works like a charm. There are enough place for the torque to travel and no bias at all. There is another one coming on a different weight and different yarn, stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by.
