River Walk Shawl

I made this for my friend T, for a shawl swap, and at the risk of sounding like I'm bragging, well, I'm going to brag. I love this! I am so stinking, ridiculously proud of how it turned out. I think it's the prettiest thing I have ever made. It's the River Walk Shawl published in Interweave Crochet last year. The stole measures 66 inches by 18 inches, and is made from just over two skeins of Cascade Heritage Silk in this gorgeous charcoal gray. What a wonderful yarn to work with--smooth, silky, yet springy from the wool, never split, no knots. The yarn shop where I bought had a knitted sweater sample hanging in the same Heritage Silk, but red. Yes, gorgeous. So please indulge my bad taste in bragging.
