Frost Crystals Shawl

This shawl was a labor of love made for my baby sister's up coming birthday.  I combined a lovely pure silk warp with some beautiful artisan beaded mohair and silk yarn to weave up a light as air slightly sparkly shawl.

It is hard to capture the iridescent beads even out here in the sunlight, darn it all.  You will have to take my word, the shawl is just lovely.  Pretty sure my little sister will love her handwoven birthday present. Guess I better get it in the mail - it takes awhile for things to arrive overseas.

On to the next project...

Happy Weaving!
