I cant tell you how much I love this shawl. Well, actually I can. I LOVE IT SOOO MUCH! There! Not only I loved the result but I also loved the process of making this shawl so much that I am thinking to make another one in different color.

The yarn was very addictive to work with. This is the first time I work with Jagerspun Zephyr although I had this yarn in my stash for quite sometimes. Now, I understand why so many people like this yarn so much.





Edit to Add:
I used about 4000 meter of Jagerspun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 Lace weight (held double) .  So it's almost 1 whole cone. I bought the yarn in sarahsyarns.com.
It took me about 1.5 months to make this.
The finish size is 84 across top edge, 40 long from centre top to point

That's really gorgeous! And it looks huge! I'm a big fan of Zephyr for knitting, but I haven't tried crocheting with it... maybe I need to.

This shawl is beautiful. I would like to try to make myself one. I knit and crochet a little but have no idea where to purchase the yarn you used or how much you need. Could you fill me in?
