Dawns Beautiful Shawl

I had the pleasure of working on Dawns shawl. The shawl is huge and so soft and comforting. The color is so warm and I love the fabric she added to the edges. Nice touch Dawn! She put a lot of knitting time into it. I had so many different ideas and visions for this shawl. It was hard to make up my mind on what to do. After checking out Dawns flickr page I came up with the idea of something whimsical.

After knitting a few i-cords I decided to felt them and curve the pieces into a tree trunk and branches. I added knitted owls with new and vintage buttons. I love how it turned out. The pictures don't do it justice. It looks much better in person. I so enjoyed working on it Dawn. I hope you like it!
