i'm beginning to become a huge fan of shawls. before i'd usually just wear them wrapped around my neck like a scarf, but now i love them thrown over the shoulders. i'm also in love with the colors of this yarn and the ombre effect. it's a little more pink in person, but just the right amount. the necklace is another piece i made when i was experimenting with different ways to stiffen and starch. obviously this technique was not a winner - it's a bit floppy now and needs to be redone. but i kind of like it how it is, too.
