after completing my first motley, which was pretty much rainbow all over, i recently knitted another one. i'd call the colorway of this one "rainbow zebra": one skein of whitish yarn, one skein of dark grey to off-white, and one skein of rainbowy yarn.

i altered the pattern by starting out with 18 instead of 15 triangles. as a result i ran out of yarn and had to finish with leftovers, odds and ends. nevertheless i'm rather pleased with the result ... despite its size the shawl behaved rather nicely in front of the camera, so here comes an overload of pics of it ~ hope you enjoy, and happy knitting everyone!  Smiley

This came out gorgeous! You can't even tell (well, I can't anyway) that you had to finish it up with leftovers! Job well done!
