I knitted this shawl before the beige one and I really like the natural off-white center and double blue border. It is knitted on 10 1/2 needles using Cascade Peruvian Highlands 100% Wool measuring 56 inches across. It is slightly smaller than the beige one which measures 60 inches. I had a scary moment when I realized that the blue from the border had bled into the center, but as it turned out it looks almost like it was an over dye in a random pattern. At any rate it is so subtle that I don't really mind and I fully intend to tell everyone that I did it on purpose!
