pattern: Tanagra (look for it around March 10th)
yarn: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, colorway "Fossil"
The intro I'm using to describe my pattern is: "This worsted weight shawl features a beautiful lace section and elements from your favorite aran sweater. Worked from the bottom up, it utilizes short row shaping in garter stitch to give it a crescent shape and keep you warm on a chilly day."
It's generously sized: 72" wide and 15" deep at the widest point. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I know I'll use it all the time. The Shelter yarn is really lofty and has a little bit of darker tweed flecks. I'm looking for pattern testers, so if you're interested, check out this thread on Ravelry!

This shawl is really big and super warm. I verified this: it was about zero degrees with windchill while my boyfriend was taking pictures of me. We'd take photos for about two minutes then I'd get really cold so we'd go sit in the car to warm up again. This is what it's like living in Wisconsin in the winter:
