Okay, the shawl is knitted.  Your basic half round type of deal. 



The piping edge around the shawl is crocheted as are the lobster appliques.



You know, I had to pick a category and row for row, I've got more knitting here.  So, there ya go. 

I designed the lobster applique for publication.  It will adorn one of three nautical inspired pillows.  Lots of fun for summer!

That is so Cape Cod!  All my Aunts and my Grammy would just love that!!!  You could sell tons of the patterns and / or the shawl itself in any of the many small crafty places on the Cape... I just love it!

Modified to add...  the lobsters are divine

Thank you! 

A couple of weeks.  Takes me about a week to knit a shawl that size, another couple days to edge it and work up the appliques and a few more days still to sew the lobsters to the shawl.
