On the needles - Herb Garden scarf/shawl

I'm working on a shawl/scarf made from handspun wool yarn. I bought the fiber from Hanks in the Hood and spun it up into a slightly thick and thin navajo plied yarn. I'm knitting until I run out of yarn; I have 126 yards to work with. After I'm done knitting the shawl/scarf I will wash it, block it and then will crochet the tailspun yarn on the side edges. I hope it turns out as well as I envision! Here are the yarns I'm working with.
Today I completed the first triangle shawl/scarf using this pattern. On this scarf I used ribbon and yarn to create tassels and attached them along the sides. This scarf is going to be a gift.
This scarf is made from handspun wool/mohair yarn and hand knitted.
The photos didn't come out the way I had hoped they would. The wind was blowing pretty hard and it kept blowing the fringe all over the place. But, you get the idea.

Taking photos outside can be frustrating! I love the colors of the yarn you're working with right now, can't wait to see the finished shawl!

Gorgeous!

I especially love the top picture with all the colorful locks, and the shawl is GORGEOUS! And Lordy Moses, getting the color right is a nightmare sometimes but I thought the pictures were lovely...

Hugs and Happy Days,
