Well, this is my first update in awhile. Things got fairly hectic, and I haven't had as much time to crochet as I would like. I did recently finish a shawl for my mom, using the pattern for Seraphina's Shawl. I think it turned out quite well. I decided not to fringe it as it is intended for evening wear, and thought that might make it look more casual than I wanted.
I've included some pictures of both the entire shawl and a close up of the stitches. Let me know what you think!
