OOAK Patchwork Shawls
I've come to love making these one-of-a-kind (OOAK) shawls because they've helped me solve a decade's old problem - what to do with left-over yarn. :->  Not only is the process fun (because I never know how the finished product will look) but it's such a joy to have a person tell me they've just got to have it!  When I sit down to begin one of these projects, piles of yarn surround me and as I pluck one color after another, the stitches are just as randomly applied.  I hope noone ever asks me to repeat a design because... well, they're OOAK.

This lovely lady purchased one of my shawls at a recent Fall Festival.  She was such a beauty, I begged her to pose for a picture.
