Bits & Baubs shawl, held out to show off shape and patterning

Bits & Baubs

This shawl is chock-full of flotsam and jetsam, trinkets and gimcracks, gewgaws and doodads. And that’s just the way I like it; by adding a bit here, a baub there, you end up with a perfectly adorned and big-enough-to-snuggle-under shawl in no time.
