Shawl I knit?

A local customer purchased my hand dyed yarn and made these beautiful shoulder shawls. She graciously shared these pictures. She made each shawl from one skein of my hand dyed fingering yarn. I believe she has done a beautiful job. Thanks Mary! This shawl was made with the merino fingering yarn, 380 yds on a size US 10 1/2 needle. It is the Lacy Winged Shawl pattern from the March 28, Knitter's 2007 calendar. It has a beautiful curve at the top and lays smoothly on the shoulders. This pattern is easy enough for the beginner shawl knitter.

This shawl is made from the "poor knitter's cashmere" fingering 380 yds Rose Garden colorway. It is the SwallowTail Shawl from Interweave Knitter's Magazine Fall 2006. She chose to do the main pattern design and eliminate the border. I thought this turned out beautiful.
This shawl is knitted from "poor knitter's cashmere" 380 yds on a size US 9 needle Extravaganza colorway. This shawl is based on the standard dishcloth pattern beginning at the point and increasing every row until desired length/width. She then added a very simple lace border.
Thank you so much, Mary for making these beautiful knitted garments and sharing the photos with me.

She did a great job. I might have to dip into my yarn from you and do the same. It is always nice to see different ideas that people come up with. Very nice.
