I am no model!

The shawls are finally done.  I did model them and I am not the perfect one for the job.  You just have to look at the shawl and by pass the woman wearing it.  I did two shawls, one is just slightly darker than this one.  It is a blue and black.  I did take the pictures outside hoping that the true color of the shawl would show.  They turned out pretty well, I made them a little heavier than I wanted.  The next time I am going to use a little silkier of a yarn.  This is a heavier mercerized cotton. I am going to do another two shawls but do them in black and green this time.   Then I will be doing some scarves on my new foldable loom.  Pictures soon.

Not much is going on at the farm.  Just trying to get through the colder temps.  It teases us every so often with warm weather.  One day this week it is supposed to rise above 50, not much though.  Hope your spring is a little better than ours.

Have a great rest of the week!

It is beautiful Lisa! I say you are a pretty good model too. The color difference are subtle but the richness of the color in the last one is beautiful. Good job:)
