FO: Textured Shawl

Introducing my first shawl!

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.

* Front* Side

* Butterfly shawl pin

* I'm a triangle!

* Spread out

I love that pattern! I'll have to make one as the weather gets cooler (which will be a good long while). :-)
