More silken hugs

I found a pattern I loved on knitty.com under the knittyspin section called the SHEEPWRAP.
As is usual, I adapted the pattern, this time to make a lacy shawl for my friend Jacqui in New Jersey. Its out of the same Interlacements Silk Wool fiber I used for David's hug, but the colorway is deeper sharper purples and greens :-} Because of the loose garterstitch, the drape is fantastic. I hope she will be able to use it for fancy dress, or to wrap 'round her head and neck on chilly Jersey nights.

Oooooooh!!! This is what I get for browsing over to your blog now again -- advance warning of prezzies! Dusty, it's gorgeous! And I am always getting chilly at the circ desk or in my office, so thank you!
