The whole time I was knitting this shawl, once I realized it was browner than I expected, I pictured it on these shoulders.
This is my coworker, Bobbi Ann. (She said I can use her name, so no anonymous initials here!) She is always so interested in what I am working on, and she loves beads and sparkly things, as well as brown and pink, I just knew it would look lovely on her.
She asked me to bring it in to show her, and to bring along some jewelry as well, as she will soon be visiting her out-of-state children.
Today I brought it all in, and she immediately said “That’s mine” about this shawl. You can see why – it looks so pretty on her! Then she chose FOUR necklaces and a bracelet for herself and her family – WOW! In the past, I have made her some socks and sweater, the deal being just that she would pay for the yarn. This was a new venture for us both, and I think we are both happy with the outcome. She got the deep “family” discount because she is so supportive and appreciative, and I got the thrill that comes with knowing something I made will be treasured. And a human model, not my usual deck rail or chair!
To top it off, she
shamed pushed me into showing some of the other women here what was left, and let’s just say, this was a profitable day for me. 🙂
So this is your final shot of this shawl you have had shoved in your faces for a month or more – and it is a pretty good idea of the color – a rich warm brown with tans and pinks in it. Look at those sparkly beads. 🙂 They just make it all perfect.
I will make another of these someday. In colors I am more likely to wear, of course! The pattern is clearly written, the yarn a dream to work with. Details on these can be found here, or by reading back on my posts this last month. 🙂
Wear it in good health, Bobbi Ann!
