Hand spun shawl

This is my Icelandic Shawl from KD's free pattern download.  I first saw this shawl several years ago and wanted to be able to spin well enough to be able to make this shawl.   The colours are all natural colours from Merino fleece from Dell Mitchell's flock from Stanthorpe, Queensland, Australia.  They were spun using an Ashford Traditional wheel.  I did have to pre-wash the various fleeces prior to sorting the colours in order to get the variation I required. 

I am very happy with the final result.
