rockefellar anyone?

this will always be known to me as my rockefellar shawl, because the first time i wore it was to dinner in front of the statue at rockefellar. In the summer the skating rink turns into an outdoor restaurant/bar. do i have a picture of me wearing the shawl in nyc you ask???....well no! because there seems to only be a hand full of pictures of me in nyc.
so here it is on my front steps. and yes that is sunshine you see. something else that is hard to come by these days.
this beauty was initially going to be all made from madeline tosh lite (which i bought on our last trip to nyc @ purl soho), but when i ran out, i had to add in some fibra natura yummy! which sounds simple right? not in my life..... what a time i had finding something that would make me equally as happy with the shawl as i would have been with my initial plan.

my next step was to add more lace, which was done to help make the change in yarn/color/and texture blend nice with the dreamy madeline tosh. but when i went to add the beautiful border.....the varigation made it look i swapped it out for a ruffled border.
not what i planned, but i love it just the same.

so in the end, i did get to wear it to nyc!
and it will be a lovely piece this summer on those cool nights
(that is if the weather improved enough that we can actually put the winter clothing away)

thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a lovely week and get out and enjoy this little bit of sunshine we are fortunate enough to be getting today!!!!
