Just Finished!







Remember that beautiful yarn I purchased? Well, I finally finished the shawl!! My original plan was to work in filet crochet and make a fleur-de-lis pattern, but after 3 tries of it not looking good, I frogged it and started again. This time I used a beautiful pattern from one of my books and created a felted fleur-de-lis to make into a shawl pin. I think it turned out wonderful and hope my friend is happy with it. It will be a gift for her sister who lives in New Orleans. I can't wait to see pictures of her wearing it during Mardi-Gras!!
