Here are the yarns I've chosen to work with....
The top yarn is a black fingering yarn, which will pop those blue, aqua, and purple Noro feathers like crazy!!! Like quilts, like knitting, it seems - I just can't help loving black as a background!!! And of course blues and aquas are always a favorite of mine. :*D
Here is my inspiration picture once again for those of you who might have missed it in my earlier post - Reminder: THIS IS NOT MY PROJECT! It is a picture from Ravelry of another knitter's project that I love and chose colors to make my own as close to it as possible :*D

Since our local knitshop, The Knaughty Knitter, held a Dreambird Knit Along (KAL) last month, my friend Joanne and I went over to start our shawl and get some pointers before we get into this project too far. Joanne has done two feathers so far, and I have completed one 'perfect' feather - after tearing my first attempt out (see post about that HERE). I'm in LOVE with this sweet feather!!!!
Be sure to go to Judy's Patchwork Times HERE to link up if you are doing this wonderful shawl!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
