eBay Purchase - Shawl

So as I mentioned in my previous post, I bought some yarn on eBay. So my advice is to make sure you read the description. There was two skeins of Noro in the picture, imagine my disappointment when I only got one in the mail. The description says it shows two to show contrast in color.

So I am in the process of making a shawl with it. I also am using hand spun yarn provided by my my daughter's mother-in-law. This is an East meets West shawl. As Noro come from Japan, and hand spun yarn comes out of Kansas.  I am not sure how well the colors will work together, as Noro is dark and the hand spun yarn is really light.

  3. I'm terrified of buying yarn from eBay ... I'm sure I'd never know what to expect! Sometimes contrast is just what the doctor ordered. Looks like it'll work to me!
