FO: Mirabel

The Mirabel KAL wrapped up on Sunday, and I managed to finish her up with a few hours to spare. I wasn't able to get finished pictures until today though.
The techniques used in Mirabel are pretty basic, but the changing patterns, colours, directions and short rows keep it from being mundane - in both the knitting and finished project.
I used left over Top Cat (Magnolia and English Ivy) and Barn Cat (Tapestry) - three skeins that weren't dyed together, but were obviously meant to be.The colour combinations for this one are endless though.
The finished shawl is on the small side, but the crescent shape means it sits nicely on the shoulders. It's the perfect little neck warmer. As much as I like it, it's going in the gift box for an upcoming birthday.

And that's one less project weighing me down. Time to go wind another skein for the tunic...

Ooh, so pretty! I keep looking at some of these styles thinking of odd skeins I have that I could use. Might have to mark that one. Great job.
