Even more beautiful “in person”

I bought two different colorways to use with a new pattern I had just seen. I spoke with the shop about how the colorways might work together, and decided to give it a try. I am soooo glad I did — the colorways overlap just enough and so vibrant!!! Can’t wait for winter so I can wear the shawl!!
