It is my Mother's Day present to my Mom, and was finally photographed and mailed off today. A week late, but Mom said she didn't mind.
Since shawl pins seem to be so expensive for what they are, I found a butterfly hair pin at Claire's with a removable stick just like a real shawl pin! Best part, it was on clearance! :-)
Pattern: Textured Shawl by Orlane's recipe Yarn: Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette in Quince (#15) Size: 48" by 23" Amount: 3 balls exactly (I only had 2 feet left over.) Needles: US 7 Mods: I added in more textured and stockinette rows to basically maximize usage of all the yarn since I used smaller needles and thinner yarn than the pattern suggested.
