The orange/gold brown was hers, and so are the needles I used to knit this. It was super easy and turned out super pretty.
Here it is being blocked, I added the crochet border with just the plain brown yarn (I only had one skein of the fancy stuff and used it up in the main body of the shawl), I thought it needed just a little something to make it look finished.
It turned out nice, with just a hint of sparkle and shine! I ended up sending it to my grandma for her birthday. (She has Alzheimer’s and cannot knit/crochet anymore). I haven’t heard if she liked it or not, but I hope she is enjoying it.
