After much angst, my shawl is complete.
The colour is somewhere between these two, but neither is quite right. the yarn called "soft grape" and is a sort of greyed purple.
Okay, the really neat part! It has beads!
I am not sure who will receive this work of art. Somebody special, considering the work.
Thanks, Cheryl, it was a wonderful challenge.
That is the first item I have completed on my Ten Things for Summer List.
