Diamond Shawl

A pic of my latest work. Wife hated the color when I came home with the yarn. Will be donating to Church auction. Hope it finds a good home.

Update:

Sold for $400 at the auction.

I really hope you *DO* get a good donation on it. My church will NOT ever get a hand made shawl from me - after I watched them knock down THREE of them as a single item - which the autioneer let go for $10, total. Hell - I would have given them $20 and kept the shawls!

If the auction has a "live auction" component, try specifying that it be part of the live auction. After seeing one of items go for very little as part of the silent auction (under $50), I decided I wouldn't give them any more shawls unless they put it in the live auction. This time, it got $235!

That is a beautiful piece of work - I've been looking for similar pattern to make for my Mother in law - she is a trooper

Beautiful! It looks like it is very cuddly soft. Hope the bidding goes well.

Really nicely done and I rather like the color of the yarn! It shows off the lacework and looks really soft.

What is the yarn? I personally like it, both in color and look.

I very much like this - both pattern and colour. Hope you make a bundle.

Yarn is Rowan Kidsilk Aura in Forest. Diamond pattern is from a stitch dictionary - Charted Knitting Design: A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker

it *is* KidSilk Aura - the next best thing to KidSilk Crack Haze; which makes phenomenal lace.

I like the design and colour, the yarn seems to have a lovely halo.
