I tried to drape it so that the pattern would show up in the picture. As you can see by the lighting, the color was not true. The bottom pic shows a more accurate color. (thanks to the daylight coming in through the front door)
I used Simply Soft yarn by Caron, and used two strands together for the pattern. I had started this shawl using just the one strand, and the pattern was coming out well; but I could see that it would take me so much longer, that I doubled up the yarn and went with that. This was an easy pattern to work with. on the lower right I added my little traditional cross charm.
My only problem is when I spot something of interest on TV while I am knitting, or my husband asks me some question that makes me lose track. It's inevitable, I guess.
