Hobobird Shawl by Anastaciaknits Using Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi

Good Morning, It is a beautiful day here in Maryland.  The humidity is low and the temperature mid-80's.  Know it won't last but it is lovely while here.  Errands this morning and then back to my crafts.  Finished up a shawl (hobobird pattern) I've been working on using Crystal Palace Yarn's mini mochi in color neptune.  It turned out quite pretty.  The pattern is fun to make and works up in a lovely shape.  The thing that makes the pattern so delightful is that you can use any yarn weight and just crochet until the size suits you or you run out of yarn...whichever comes first.  After blocking mine, the size is perfect for a petite woman.  I have just the one in mind but can't name her yet...it's a surprise!  As you can see, Shaunti loves to pose and my talented husband put the shawl in a lovely stained glass frame.  All in all, I think it turned out very pretty.  Thank you Anastaciaknits for the pattern and to Crystal Palace Yarns for such lovely yarn.
