This is by far my favorite shawl pattern ever.  I think I have made it 9 times now (not all for me!). I love all the different stitch patterns.  Here are a few pictures of the ones I managed to get photographed.

This one was made with lots and lots of handspun scraps:

This one is Stitches Under the Sun sport weight wool:

This wool was dyed by the recipient:
