Name: Feather and Fan Triangle Shawl
Designer: Cheryl Oberle
Pattern Source: "Folk Shawls"
Yarn Source: Handspun –18 wpi – Ashland Bay Merino-Mojave Red/Grafton Fibers
Needle Size: 8

Although I would have loved to have knit the shawl using the yarn called for in the pattern, I really wanted to use my own handspun. A very easy pattern (once I wrote out the charts), it took about 3 weeks to knit. I am very pleased with the results. It hasn't been blocked yet and it probably will never be. It is large enough and I like the way it drapes. My daughter was kind enough to model it for me.
