First of all, let me say that these are not the best pictures I have ever taken. We were in a hurry and some of them are blurry and I didn't look at them at the time, so we didn't know it. There are also a lot where Girl's eyes are closed or her face is funny - again, I didn't look at them closely at the time. The point is to show off the shawls.
The first shawl is the one made from the alpaca silk blends - the darker color is the 70% alpaca, 30% silk blend and the lighter is the 70% alpaca, 20% merino, 10% silk blend. These were lovely yarns to knit with and this was a terrific pattern to knit. I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this Arroyo shawl/scarf.
This is the Piper's Journey Shawl/Scarf. This one was the model's favorite and she wore it for the rest of the day. I might need more of all three of these yarns to make another one of these for her.
It turned out quite long because I just kept going until I pretty much ran out of yarn. There were 200 yards of each of the black and brown and 300 yards of the white. There is less than a yard of each of the black and brown but since there was more of the white, there is a bit of it left, but not a lot. The black was the 80% Alpaca, 20% merino and the brown was the 70% Alpaca, 30% merino. The white was the Fantasy Fibers 80% Alpaca, 20% merino.
