another cotton shawl

I found this pattern called "Eva's Shawl" on Ravelry. This is not my favorite choice of yarn colors, but I had a spool of Peaches and Cream I bought on clearance for half price. I love working with cotton yarn. :) Now that I've tried the pattern, maybe I will make one in black. :think: This one will probably go to my mother.

I'm creative. You can't expect me to be neat too.

That is so very pretty. You are sew talented/skilled with fiber arts.

Thanks ladies. I'm not really sure how long it took me since I only worked on it here and there. :think: I started it some time during the summer. I finally put about 2 solid hours into it while I've been sick and got it finished. It could probably be finished in a weekend if someone wanted to.
I tend to have 3 or 4 different things started at a time because I get bored easily. (Same goes with sewing projects :shame: )
Next I want to finish a wool sock yarn shawl I started last spring. :anxious: But first, I promised to help DD design a bag for a homework project. She's supposed to take a bag to her speech class, filled with things that describe her personality. Of course she wants to make the bag. :D

Lovely job! I have a couple of large balls of cotton yarn, I should make a shawl (ha ha ha - when???) I'm like you Lori, I have way too many things on the go and I keep starting new ones, and not finishing what I have going. It's a bad habit.
