The shawl is made with 3 different colours of fingering weight yarn.
Colour A - medium shade, approx 380 yards
Colour B - darkest shade, approx 430 yards
Colour C - lightest shade , approx 360 yards

There will be prizes, of course!
I named this shawl after Rafu-Sen, the Japanese Goddess of Plum Blossoms.
