Back on Blossom Street Shawl

Well I was able to finish up my take on Alix's shawl from the new book Back on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. This is the third one of these that I have made. One will be going to a mother for Christmas. I'm not tell which one as she will just have to wait. If you have not read this series of books, they are just a fun read. I was talking with a gal that reads all the time and she reads serious things. Well as a mother of two teen daughters and another one that thinks she is. I find it really fun to end my day reading some light hearted fiction. How about you. I really don't enjoy romance as a rule, I ready mostly mysteries, but I have found that some of Debbie's books are not so much romance but more about friendships. What is your favorite type of book to read and who are your favorite authors?
Now for the stats on the shawl. It about 32 inches long and 60 inches wide as its widest. I used Lorna's Laces lace weight mohair. I'm not sure the color way as its been in a ball for years. I'm sure it was dyed by Lorna herself, that's how long I have had the yarn in waiting in my stash.

The shawl looks great! I love Lorna's Laces yarns. I think that all the ones that I have were bought before Lorna sold the company too. I had more disposable income before I got married!
