Elvia - new shawl pattern

Yeah, I finally finished my newest pattern (not that I have that many out there yet... :-)
You might have seen the semicircle shawl I knit recently on my Ravelry project page.

It's half-pi shaped shawl knit in stockinette stitch with a small flower lace motif and a ruffle all around that is knit simultaneously with the main body of the shawl. It can easily be knit without the bobbles that adorn the lower section.
Well, the pattern has now been tested and is available on Ravelry and in my Etsy store.
Since blue is my favorite color my version is knit in a light blue Alpaca/Silk blend from Garnstudio Drops:
However, I was extremely fortunate that one of my test knitters, catpurloo on Ravelry, knit this shawl in a very different color scheme and also granted me permission to use her wonderful photographs with beautiful model Ashlynn Eggebrecht wearing her shawl:

I have been knitting on other projects but a two week vacation on a sail boat slowed me down a little. I will post images of my progress in a following blog post.
