Scotch Thistle Shawl finished

The Scotch Thistle Shawl is finished, blocked it this past weekend. It's quite beautiful if I say so myself. It was handknit from my handspun, original roving was some hand-dyed that I bought from Sara of Great Balls of Fiber up in WA. The colors remind me of a thistle in bloom.

Snow again here yesterday, still covering the property, more expected overnight tonight - finally moisture has returned to the area, we are way behind in rainfall for the year which starts in September for record keeping. Need lots to get us through the dry summers here.
