Two

 Just a quick post to show you finished project number two for the year.  This shawl was made from a combination Cascade Eco Duo and Alpaca yarn I had in my stash.  I actually tried to make this pattern on purpose, changing the yarn type every ten pegs on my loom.  I think it has made an interesting plaid that is subtle but adds some depth to the shawl.
THis shawl is very soft, can't you just picture it with jeans and a white t-shirt?  Of course that is the way I imagine every shawl, as you can see I am not a fancy girl.  In my dream life I am standing on a wide front porch of a very old home calling my kids into dinner, with a gorgeous shawl wrapped around my shoulders.  Ah.... a girl can dream.

I have wrapped up three shawls and the red scarf all from my loom, ready to ship to my sister for her etsy store.  I have two more shawls in my head if not on my loom, then I will switch to a few scarves. 

When I made my green shawl I took lots of pictures of how it was made.  Is anyone interested in a post about weaving?

I would love to learn more about weaving. Your shawls are gorgeous!! And a laptop or an iPad would be a good investment; I love my iPad2 and have hardly used my laptop since Christmas!!

Beautiful shawls, I would love to see how they're made, I can't envisage the method at the moment.
Happy New Year to you!
