HI. I've mostly been a knitter with aspirations to crochet after seeing some of the projects in The Happy Hooker. I've loved this shawl so much that I've taken the plunge. Saturday I started and although I've pulled it out 4 times so far, I remain optimistic! I've only got the book to teach me!
I think that your shawl is just as beautiful as the one in the book. Did you have to change your hook size to make the pattern work with mohair yarn?
