True Blue Damson

I am a big fan of Ysolda Teague's Damson shawl. It is easy and gives a lovely result. I finished this one a few months ago and finally got a photo that I like.

I added small blue and magenta-ish 6.0 beads to the edging. I like beads on the bottom of shawls for sparkle and to add a little weight to the bottom of the shawl. Other details:
  • Yarn: Harrisville Shetland Tweed, True Blue, approximately 500 yards
  • Needles: US6
  • Back neck length: approximately 15 inches
The shawl is is hanging on my 50+-year-old Royal Ann cherry tree; I hope recent wind storms have not destroyed this year's crop.
