Paulette's shawl is delivered!  As much as I enjoyed the project, the stitches and the yarn, nothing, nothing beat the smile on her face!

 Two coordinating colours of BFL 2/8 from Fleece Artist, one of the nicest yarns ever,
 knit into a wide scarf that could be worn as a hood, but with buttons to allow it to be used as a shawl for those days when you need a pretty shawl,
 and some interesting Estonian stitches
made her so happy.

I'm only sorry it got involved in my little loss of winter mojo and took so long.  Otherwise just pleased as punch for the favour she did me and for the knitting to return the favour.

Paulette is one of the most amazing women.  She crochets.  She weaves.  She does rug hooking.  She embroiders so beautifully that it makes me want to cry.  Bust she doesn't knit, or at least I haven't seen her knitting yet so it was just such a pleasure that in return for a pattern, I knit her this.

A fair trade.  Perfect.

That is a very satisfied look on her face.
