Simple Yet Effective Shawl

Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.
~Mary Anne Roadacher-Hershey~

Pattern: Simple Yet Effective Shawl from Cosmicpluto knits
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk 70% Silk combined with 30% SeaCell
Color: Lily Pond (you can't really see the color in this photo unfortunately. Trust me, it's a gorgeous yarn)
Recipient: This shawl is for one of my favorite aunts who is battling breast cancer.

I'm hoping that the Seacell will provide comfort to her.
What is seacell? From the handmaiden site:
Seacell is a cellulose based fibre made from seaweed. That’s right – seaweed! It is highly breathable and very soft. When worn, your skin’s natural moisture will release magnesium, calcium and vitamin E contained within the seaweed. It has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to protect the skin. Amazing.
