I am very interested in your site and patterns but I must tell you this: It is extremely frustrating to try and see ur beautiful shawls because of the advertising that keeps jumping in and covering your pictures and written context. I did try closing advertisements but then a block of white continues to cover everything! It is very frustrating. I don’t know if you are aware of this or if there is anything you can do about it.

It just hit me, this would make a great shawl in red (think poinsettia) for Christmas. I live in the south.
