The great reveal

Well I'm sure you've all been holding your breath...

Here is it is, as promised...

RIOPELLEAs I said before, I got this yarn off mom months ago. It was really difficult finding a pattern that would work because of all the colour.... so I designed my own.

It's a pretty quick project (for a shawl) and makes great TV knitting.

It's named for Canadian artist Jean Paul Riopelle, who is credited with bringing the abstract impressionist movement to France. Like abstract impressionism, this shawl uses texture and a multitude of colour to create a work of art

aren't you lucky to have a mom that gives you wool for free.
NOT the Wollmeise, though.

Sometimes a simple pattern makes the most beautiful shawl.
