For Jessie and Jeremy. The picture refused to shrink and felt in the Adobe wash, so I had to cut it with the Picasa scissors. The front edges of the shawl are folded back on themselves.

Thank you to those who emailed: my Crohn’s is settling back down like we told it to, and in time for their wedding, too. Isn’t it nice to have an obedient disease like that?

Specs: Monterey pattern using Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk, a heavier yarn than used in the original, so I swapped out the pattern and used the Constance pattern from “Wrapped in Comfort” as a template to get a smaller stitch count. Size 10 US (6mm) needles, four skeins, using 14 g of the fourth 50g skein.

You look stunning in those colors! Wow, great shawl–and thank goodness, you didn’t burn anything down either! What a great combo. 🙂 Can’t say we are that successful around here this week–house is still standing but no stunning FO to speak of. 🙂

You look beautiful as always, love the Monterey in white, you wear it much better than I do! So glad it all worked out, things are funny like that.

It is gorgeous, as are you :-}
I’m working on a version of your fast and easy shawl right now, using lace-weight malabrigo in AS Gold (autumn colors with a touch of purple)
