FO: Faded Roses Shawl

It took almost two years(!), but I finally got around to blocking this lovely shawl by Kelene Kinnersly. The pattern is called the Faded Roses Shawl.

I used Pisgah Peaches & Creme for the yarn in the colorway Paprika. It's a 100% cotton yarn. After blocking, I noticed the yarn was sort of pilling, and I don't like the drape. The fabric is really stiff.

I plan on remaking this pattern with a DK cotton yarn that's suitable for garments, but with the same size needles as for the worsted yarn. Hopefully that will improve the drape. I need to start using higher quality yarns for these kinds of projects.

More information on this shawl is available on Ravelry.
