I love to wear shawls and wraps, and I have a very nice collection of them. They fit the theme of this blog, because they come from all over the world.
This wrap is off-white with very fine embroidery on it. The fabric is wool, and it is nice and warm. It is at least 40 inches wide and quite long too. When I got it the ends were unfinished. I knotted the fringes as I was wearing it. This is a close-up of the embroidery:
One of the interesting things about this shawl is the label. I'm so pleased it's "export quality"! I wonder what you think the picture represents? I have had long discussions on this with the person who gave it to me. Please leave a comment as to what you think it represents! I will post later what I think it is.
I just have to mention that I met Spinster Stitcher, her very self, at the House of Stitches in LaPorte yesterday. So nice to meet you! I overheard her talking about "Stewie's" Halloween costume, and I had to introduce myself.
My trip to the shop was very successful. I got the 2 things on my list that I needed (a skein of Silk n' Color, 142, and a Tacky Bob), and I found a couple more things to enjoy as well. The floss and Tacky Bob were put to good use last night in my current project Indian Summer Reflections.
