Gretchen's Shawl

Okay - so I'm a shawl knitting freak. Just thought I'd post a pic of the latest one. Super easy pattern - looks great but don't recommend the yarn - it bleeds like crazy! Can't make it stop. It's way too expensive (the woman I knit it for bought it) to not hold its color (Fiesta Yarns La Boheme).
