The backstory:
Here in the Pacific NW, autumn has been waxing and waning in a most delightful way. Deceptively sunny days pair with ever more chilly nights (and mornings).

While making coffee in the early a.m. (still dark outside) I noticed I was shivering. Going from room-to-room in this old house, I realized I needed some “applied science” if I was going to make it through the season (but there’s nothing that says functional can’t be Pretty…)

This smaller-scaled cresent-shaped shawl works as a shoulder warmer or neckerchief and is a great on-the-go small project.

Create some fun (or dramatic) combinations to paint your shawl (handspuns? yes!)
