I fell in love with the Color Affection shawl when I first saw it in January but had to wait until February until it was available to the general public. I love Veera Valimaki's shawl designs. She has released 3 striped shawls in the last year, each one a variation on the other by playing with short rows & colours.
I wasn't sure which colours to use so I played around with various combinations.
As soon as I started with the Pink Grapefruit & Truffle (part of the Tanis Fiber Arts Clubs 2011 & 2012), it was obvious I had a winner.
The shawl is a belated birthday gift for my Mom's February birthday. Happy Birthday Mom!
