Oak Leaf Shawl

Here's the finished Oak Leaf (Shoulder) Shawl kicking its way through the autumn leaves in Alexandra Park.
This is going to be a present for my sister who is making a good recovery from a recent operation.
She tells me she has been getting out for a short walk every day so hopefully she can wear this to keep away the autumn draughts, without having too much bulk around the neck- see, you can make the fact it's tiny sound almost deliberate, with a bit of reframing!
You can see it looks quite snuggerific on my jacket and I quite like the cowl thing that's happening in the second picture.
I am a much bigger build than my sister, so it will drape around her neck and a little bit of shoulder just nicely.
Thank you for all your kind comments so far. x K
