Fichu Bleu Shawl from fiber to flair

I’ve been ordering merino top from Paradise Fibers any time it goes on sale and I spun a three ply soft fingering yarn.

Next I dyed it with Jacquard Acid dye pink combined with brilliant blue.

It took a week and a day to knit this up slightly smaller than the pattern called for with size five needles instead of the seven the pattern called for. I’m thinking of making another for myself.
