In the studio: black and white shawl

Shawl, wool wrapped in nylon; seed stitch, size 8 aluminum needles, 14"; original design

I started this about a year ago, thinking I would use up this old yarn, I think  I'm ready to get it done now, so I'm working on it while I ride the bus.  It's beginning to get heavy, so it's a bit difficult to hold and turn, although it is visually very interesting and keeps my fingers warm - a nice feature now that the weather has become cold again.

This will have a button and loop along the top long edge so that it can be wrapped around the shoulders and buttoned in the front or on the shoulder if desired.  The planned dimensions are 20" x 50" in.
