A little winter project

While boutique hopping, I discovered a gorgeous braided shawl.  While the price was quite excessive, I vowed to recreate it for a fraction of the cost.  I must admit that although I pride myself in being artistic and detail-oriented, promoting the hand-made and seeing concepts through from start to finish, I have absolutely no patience for knitting.  From the stitch-counting to the resulting unevenness between rows, it is more of a source of frustration than relaxation for me.

I can, however appreciate a well-crafted scarf or sweater and applaud all those who stick with this craft.
