Spring shawl weather brings out the lovliest pattern ideas. One thing that is nifty about some shawls is that they can double as lap throws, depending on the yarn you choose. Love the pattern. It's interesting to see the color change of the yarn based on the lighting. I rather like the lighter mustard yellow color.

Absolutely gorgeous! Spring here means upper 70's to mid-80's -- meaning I'm envious of both your talent & your weather :)

Last week it was in the 80s. Today it's grey, cloudy and rainy - a perfect day for reading and networking.

And knitting!

We're at almost 90 today; just finished a shift as a docent at our historic lighthouse, now getting for a sunset sail w/ DH on Lake Pontchartrain.

Sounds like we're both having "life is good" kind of days...

Well it was gorgeous today here. In the 70's partly sunny and a little over cast later in the day. spent the whole day out in the gardens and now with dinner finished doing my second wingspan... Your shawl is very pretty and a good one for the spring.

I saw this wrap in KP last fall and saved the pattern. The author wrote about her attendance at a wedding and how many women were wearing shawls. I had been drooling over the many lace shawl postings in KP, and had a wedding to attend in April. As many of you know, the East coast was having very cool weather this spring; 6 weeks in advance I began the Cat's Paw Lace Wrap (my first lace project). I added a few inches to the width and length. After "frogging" for a few weeks, I "got it". It's actually an interesting and easy pattern. ...To shorten this story, I finished in time with no noticeable mistakes. I highly recommend this wrap - it is elegant with a nice drape. I couldn't find the "Glitz" yarn so used a black bamboo/silk. I would not recommend the bamboo however, as it is heavy - go with a yarn closer to the pattern recommendation. Holbrook - here I come. :)
