|Here is it at the end of last week - I was almost done with the body, and|
just about to start on the edging. Look at those lovely neutrals.
|Here it is with the top and the right side of the bottom pinned. Even with|
the sun playing tricks, you can see the difference blocking makes. I wound
up repinning a portion of the bottom (center right), lengthening it just a little more.
|And finally, the dried, finished shawl. I love the study of|
neutrals against the pop of color in the background as
well as against the pullover on my dress form.
|I took some photos outside in natural light, and I hope|
you can see the two rows of edging on which I used
Andrea's handspun. That wonderful squoishy alpaca
made great "pearly" puffs!
|Here's one more close-up of the edging details from|
the inside shots. I cannot tell you how warm this shawl
is in alpaca and Fishermen's Wool! It's also received
some very nice compliments (since I seem to want
to wear it all the time at the moment).
And that concludes my latest Pommi and Pearls Shawl - from the very start to completion. All of these photos were taken with my cell phone, so while not perfect, they still are rather passable, even if I do say so myself. :) Now don't forget to head on over to Wisdom Begins in Wonder to see if Andrea has answered any other weighty life questions this week (and even if she has, you really need to check out the absolutely gorgeous colorways she's got in her shop at moment - I think I'm coveting one of everything).
