Blueberry Triangle Shawl

Another FO (finished object) and another project cast on. I know a few women who are having babies, and so far the known sexes are boys. What's going on? I love blue, but there are so many cute lacy patterns to give, and they do not belong on boys. Oh well.
Here's the finished blueberry triangle shawl. The name comes from the fact that the yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Merino lace in the blueberry hill colorway, but also because this is being donated to the Girl's Talk raffle that is held during the Wilton Blueberry Festival. My DD has done the girl's talk program the last 2 years, and it is wonderful. 5th and 6th grade girls team up with a mentor from the community (including UMF students) and they both read the same book. Once a month, there is a dinner where the girls & their mentors discuss the book and do activities together. This year the DD had a chance to go to the Margaret Chase Smith museum with 3 other girls. This is a wonderful program, and hopefully the shawl helps raise a lot of money.

(notice the daughter's new haircut from the relay for life!! 12 inches gone to locks for love! I know I said this before, but I'm really proud of her for following through with it, eventhough it was nerve racking for a minute. She really loved having long hair, but knew it was for a good cause and that it would grow back.)
