Railroad and Mohair Shawl - complete

Shawl, seed stitch, mohair, nylon and rayon, size 8 rosewood cable needle

I have several hundreds of yarns of South West Trading Company  "Melody" yarn in a pinky beige color and I always enjoy using Melody with mohair yarns because the little shiny rayon bits look wonderful with the fuzzy mohairs. The shawl was about 67 in across the top and about 20 inches deep at the triangle point.

This is a loose, diaphanous fabric.

I donated it to an auction to raise money for our Washington Park Conservancy here in Albany.
