Okay, I'm bad. Chalk it up to being a newbie that I didn't give any shawl information =) My pattern for the shawl was Moonlight Sonata, and I used Wildfoote sock yarn, 100% wool, fingering weight. I want to try laceweight for my next shawl! (Next shawl, you say? Yes, yes. I got sucked into the Mystery Stole 3, but have no yarn) What I can't get over is how truly light and airy my shawl is. I thought it would feel more substantial once I got it finished. Perhaps blocking would add weight? Heehee. No, it feels like wearing nothing on my shoulders, but it surely is pretty.
I didn't glam up too much, but when LaurieM left that in the comments, I realized I was going to wear it with my shorts and t-shirt, so I waited for church on Sunday. Then it rained! We took the pictures, anyway.
Once in church, my daughter wore it for singing in the choir. See all of the choir? We've gotten very, very small, as we're right in between little kids at church, and kids having grown too old for the youth choir. Now, the two girls in this picture that are not mine are moving away, so the choir will be closed awhile, until more children grow. Sorry about the picture. I got one chance, since I was running the music, and it didn't come out so great.
By our Humility and Grace.....
