I love shawls because of their versatility. They help offset any coldness if you're under dressed, can be taken off if you're too warm and can dress up any outfit even if you feel blah. I am currently in progress of my first shawl of the season, and it's an evening edition, the Sweep Me Off My Feet Broomstick Lace Shawl. Below is a little snippet of what it looks like.
I will also include a special pin I bought for it from fellow Etsy seller Kerri White (store link here http://www.etsy.com/shop/ShawlPinHeaven) who makes tons of shawl pins by hand, all are which are beautiful, handmade and hard to choose from. Below is the pin.
Isn't it gorgeous? I picked peacock design because the alternate name for the broomstick lace is called the peacock eye (across the big Atlantic pond in merry old England. Cheerio!)
I will have many more shawls coming up, I hope :-) stay tuned!
And please, while you're here, leave a comment and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you :-)
