So I thought I would make something for myself and as I had not
yet tackled a shawl, I thought I would attempt to do so.....

Unfortunately I didn't have enough yarn and between that and
the texture of the yarn itself, it didn't come out exactly right
but it's warm and functional....

The original pattern: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80877AD.html?r=1







So it didn't come out quite right and is a bit small but what the hey, it's a warm
shawl to wear while crafting. Plus the nerd in my likes to buttons lol.

I think it looks great... that light ivy color really complements the stitching.  Smiley

I like that its smaller than the one in the original pattern. That and the color makes it look younger and cuter! I am a button FIEND so, I'm with you on adding a button to it!  Grin

Ha thanks Veggiechef, if you look close-up it looks a little odd because of the wool I used was um
unevenly spun, it goes from chunky to sport weight throughout the skein, but I like it, keeps me
warm and adds some brightness to my wardrobe  Cheesy
