Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl

This lovely was started April 1st. I purchased the pattern here. It's smaller than I expected but that could very well be due to the amazingly stretchy yarn I'm using -- Red Heart Color 680 Pastel Green "84% virgin orlon acrylic, 16% rayon" pompadour yarn. So I'm going to add five to ten more groups and see where that gets me... Luckily I have two more skeins to play with!

The yarn has been in my stash at least 20 years and was originally purchased to make an ensemble for a baby gift. I never could get into making baby stuff. So, the yarn has been resurrected into what will become a nice shoulder shawl for moi! Here it is in progress...

I think I will be looking for a cotton thread to make my next one!
