Crochet Catch-Up: Autumn Shawl for Mom

This shawl was made for my Mom's 60th birthday.  I finished it in less than a month, not because of procrastination on my part, but because I made one up in purple and decided I wanted it for myself. So I had to make another one for her.

Yarn: Misti Alpaca--Hand Paint Lace, 100% Alpaca, Lace / 2-ply

Pattern: Piquant Shawl by Lily Go, found here

Notes: I adore patterns by Lily Go.  This shawl was my first (technically second, see above) by her, and it was incredibly simple to work up.  You work the outside edge first then build in the middle, so that part got a bit tiresome, but that's true of most any shawl.
