Queens Shawl, full sized!
The hand spun yarn is subtly variegated with purples and blues and a tiny bit of teal blue, all peacock colors to pull in the personal heraldry of our queen. That color variation didn't show up well in the photos, but in person it adds a very pretty shimmer to the shot fabric. Not a period shimmer, but a pretty one. It will look really pretty out in the sun when we present the finished shawl (assuming of course that we have sun on the day, one can only hope!)
