The Shawl Project

I was gently taken to task for not wearing my lace when I wrote this post, so I decided to try to wear as many of them as possible this month! 
 
The only rule - it either had to be worn out of the house somewhere, or had to be used at home for a significant period of time.  (In other words, I couldn't just take a picture and be done with it)
 
Documented selfie-style, of course.
 
 1/10/16 - handspun, handknit silk Estonian lace Peacock scarf
 
 1/10/16 - later that day, beaded silk Tibetan Clouds stole.
 
 1/11/16 - Mandala shawl
also worn as a scarf with my coat.
 
 
1/12/16 - Elektra (to be fair, this is one I wear all of the time)

 1/13/16 - Taygete - this one makes my mouth water, the colors are such an amazing combo!  But I never actually wove in the ends (eeep!), and so I'd never worn it.  Went ahead and wore it today despite that little oversight...which is all too common with my shawls.


1/14/16 - Weeping Willows. Another cheat, as this is a go-to shawl of mine that I've worn a LOT.
 
 1/15/15 - Rhea Silvia - I made the mistake of attempting to wrap it like you do with cowls....
 I HATE having stuff wrapped around my neck! This is better.

 1/15/16 - Second outing for the day, Prairie Rose Shawl

 1/16/16 - Lisianthus

 1/17/16 - Aolian Shawl

 1/18/16 - Wore Tibetan Clouds a second time, styled very differently

 1/19/16 - Melon Scarf

 1/21/16 - Heart to Heart (used to wear this all of the time, too)

 1/21/16 - Color on Color, worn on top of Heart to Heart

 1/22/16 - Miralda's Triangular Shawl

 1/23/16 - Hap Shawl (I was sick, so I curled up with it in my favorite chair all morning.)
 
1/25/16 - Maia Shoulderette
 
 1/28/16 - Shamrocks! (The weather has warmed...they are beginning to be a bit much.)

 1/29/16 - Another old favorite and oft worn, Laminaria, for around the house in the morning.


And with all of that...these are the shawls that I wasn't able to wear.  If I'd given it the full month...maybe.
