FO: Mariposa Turquesa
I have finished knitting my Mariposa Shawl, this time using Knit Picks Aloft in a gorgeous shade of turquoise named Kenai. This luscious mohair/silk blend is incredibly soft, lightweight and warm. The beads are a mix called 'Blue Iris' and are shades of blue, purple, turquoise, green and bronze. Worked in three sections of feather and fan stitch, this shawl has a nice shape that drapes easily over the shoulders and stays put. No having to fuss with a shawl pin. The beaded picot bind off takes awhile, but totally worth the effort.
