The Phoenix Rising shawl is done! As I am 5'1", I abbreviated it, leaving off most of the edging. I think it's less grandmalicious on me if the shawl is smaller.
First the close-up. See the phoenix's feathers?
I changed out the silver/white beads that came with the kit for topazy ones. The topazy beads seem more glowing fire, more phoenix rising from the ashes.
And here's the shawl. Isn't it pretty?
