Ruana Shawl - hand-dyed, hand-spun, hand-woven

Here is a little follow on from my last post.

I made a second shawl length using the same gradient dyed wool as the first. I had a project in mind... a ruana shawl. And here it is

It has a beautiful soft drape

And on the centre panel at the back I experimented with an overshot design using pick-up sticks. That took a very long time to do but I like the result
I entered it in the Sydney Royal Arts and Crafts Show and was awarded a Highly Commended for it. Not bad for someone who has only been weaving for 6 months.
