Rainbow Plaid Shawl

My first shawl is complete. I call it Rainbow Plaid. It's woven in Lion brand Homespun yarn. The plaid occurs naturally from the rainbow of colors in that yarn. It took only three and a half skeins of yarn to complete, including the fringe. I wove it using the continuous weave technique. I chose to use twisted fringe to overcome way the yarn likes to fray. The top picture shows the shawl being woven on my home-made seven foot tri-loom. The second picture shows the finished shawl. (I'm still trying to figure out the best way to photograph a 7 foot finished shawl.) The Third picture shows a close up of the weave.
