Affectionately finished

I finished my Color affection shawl.  I used Lionbrand sock yarn.  The big skeins, you know the kind one skein makes 2 socks.  It was nice to work with, washed up beautifully.  It even blocked out nicely. I did a no traditional blocking.  Hung it on the clothes line at the cabin.  Gentle breeze.  Used the weight of wooden clothes pins to stretch it out.  It worked great!
I cranked out a basic cowl out 2 skeins of donated yarn. Both were wool thick and thin variegated yarn.  With almost a roving feel.  I love the shades of blue and yellow together.
