I decided to use two color-compatible yarns I've spun to make this shawl, as I didn't think I had enough of either (and I was right!). Although the multi-colored yarn is much thicker and a (Navajo-plied) 3-ply and the solid silvery yarn is a slenderer but significantly more variable thickness single-ply, I think it worked out pretty well :)

And, of course, here's Bug's Citron photo shoot!
Bug looks a little bit like a fuzzy flower, don't you think?
Happy (slightly early) Earth Day!
