Ruana Shawl

Alan finally took a break from painting the garage to take pictures of me wearing the shawl.  As usual I'm squinting into the sunlight.  LOL.  At least it's a little warmer than the last time I managed to get Alan to help with pictures.  

It goes great with jeans which are my 3 season pant of choice.  And of course, it's all my favorite colors.  I know it looks like a poncho but it's really a great big square with a slit in it.  You put it on and just throw one side over your shoulder (or not).  It's light and airy, providing a little warmth without being hot. It's made from 95% wool and 5% silk.


  1. Beautiful - looks like a great addition to the wardrobe. I might make myself one for winter - not knitted of course - wouldn't know how. Looks great on you.

  2. Love. And perfect for spring. And fall.

  3. This is exactly what I want to make. The colors and the shape are just beautiful. Did you use a particular pattern? Or you one of the talented ones who can just whip up what their mind sees?

    Thanks so much for sharing!
