Diagonal Beaded Shawl

Finished. This is a Sharon Silverman pattern from the TNNA class I took earlier this month. The shawl is light as a feather but very warm. The beaded fringe gives it enough weight to hold its shape and to keep it from flying around in the breeze. The fiber is Filatura Di Crosa's Multicolor, a DK/sport weight mohair and acrylic blend, and size 6 silver beads. I love it. I plan to make this again. Maybe in a lace-weight, solid color mohair like Kid Silk Haze. Maybe as a rectangle. Hmmm, possibilities . . . . .
