AKA: Shawl on a Hot Tin Roof

This should make me think of Elizabeth Taylor, but it makes me think of Johnny Cash instead.

This pattern is much easier than it looks. And the best part? Not a single purl! :-D

I took a batch of pictures on Thursday and then a second batch on Sunday. It seems like it has gotten a bit less lacy in those few days. (Is this normal? Is it just my imagination?) I don’t mind because it’s still so light and PLENTY big.
