Knit one, crochet too

I received this yarn in a Whoduknit swap from my swap pal Claire. It's hand dyed merino wool and really soft and nice to work with. The pattern is Lionbrand's Very Easy Ripple Shawl, which is really a feather and fan pattern.
This is "Eva's Shawl" crocheted with Jo-Anns Sensation Ranbow Boucle yarn and a size I hook, instead of the lace yarn called for in the pattern. This yarn is hard to work with but I love the results - a lightweight, soft, shoulder hug that stays on. The yarn was a gift from my friend Layne, and I have enough to crochet another shawl, probably the pistachio Lace-Up shawl. (on Ravelry)
