Amy gifted me with this LaLa Shawl at the Fiber Fest in September. It's some of my dyed Cotswold lamb and silk called Forget Me Not which I'm currently out of but hope to make more of soon.
I like to roll the collar area for extra warmth over the back of my neck and it stays on my shoulders well that way, too.

Along with the sample baby garments she knit to showcase my Cotswold yarn, Caroline also made a pair of mittens which I neglected to blog about. Bad Robin.

And before that, our spinning guild held a "hand covering exchange" in which all participants put unspun fiber in a bag, the bags were shuffled, and each person took a bag with the direction to make a pair of mittens/gloves/mitts/muffs/whatever and at the end of the designated time they would be returned to the original owner magically made into something nice. Wouldn't you know, out of 40-some participants Caroline got my fiber. We got a sneak peek at our items at a guild meeting, then they were all whisked away to be held until the fiber fest when they would become an awesome guild display. But when that was over, they became mine, mine, mine!
Beautiful things, made by friends. My heart is already warm.
