I suppose I've lurked the boards long enough, and it's time to get around to posting something I've done. I worked up this fancy little shawl/wrap thing in a couple of days, and I'm proud of it regardless. I would love some feedback, though!  Wink

this is awesome! I love how the front attaches and overlaps a bit, is it a button or pin?  How does it look in the back?  Just as cute I bet  Wink
I really love the colors together too, very nicely done!

That's adorable!  I love the colors you picked, and the shape of the shawl is so sweet.

Thanks! The rosette is sewn on to a button.
This is what it looks like in the back. Forgive the horrible camera quality, and the ton of stuff in my mirror. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=329474840434490&set=a.240360626012579.57670.100001159290903&type=3&theater

That looks amazing, I couldn't get the facebook picture to load.

Did you follow a pattern? If so which pattern?

For the most part I followed the Seraphina shawl pattern, But after a certain point I improvised to get a more lacy, frilly effect on the edges.
