No Words

There are simply no words to describe this shawl.

Well, maybe a few.

It was crocheted on commission for a wonderful lady who is paying me in massages. (She's a professional masseuse, so get your dirty mind out of the gutter.)
She wanted a ruana, which I had really never heard of before, but it is a rather nice shape for a shawl. She brought in all the yarn, mostly acrylic and fun fur, and she said to do lots of different open crochet stitches. She also wanted the colors placed randomly.
I think I achieved that.
It took a long time, and a lot of effort, but she's a really good masseuse. And now she's having me do an afghan. I...have not words for that either. It's still fuzzy acrylic. But she's still a really good masseuse.
In summary:
Yarn: Various acrylics and furry things in mass quantities
Needle: Size N crochet hook
Pattern: Choosing random stitches as I along, basic ruana shape
Time: 17 hours
Cost: Well, she supplied the yarn, so it was all profit massage-wise for me

Thank you for your compliment. The Patons SWS yarn is really great to work with too.

I cannot believe that you had time to make this. I swear you are a knitting/crochet freak who doesn't require any sleep. You run on yarn, while the rest of us survive from caffeine.
