Handwoven Wool/Mohair Shawl

The other day I was sitting in a meeting and getting rather cold. I thought to myself, it is time to weave a shawl for yourself. I had just gotten 3 boxes of yarn as a gift and found beautiful wool mix for a warp and mohair for the weft. I had forgotten how easy and fast it goes to warp with thick wool. 
I had to manipulate the pattern just to see if I could and then changed the tie up to a 2/2 twill, very loosely woven with mohair. Love the outcome, tonight I will bring more colors into the weft.
