FO: Rendezvous Shawl

This is the first shawl I made using the yarn that hand-dyed by my husband. However because of the process editing and testing took longer time, I published Piquant earlier.
When I designed this pattern, I though it will be lovely in this bold solid color, so I requested him to dye this color for me. Since this pattern is my design and using his hand-dyed yarn, I think Rendezvous seems to be a very suitable name.

This yarn has excellent yardage. At first I make 8 repeats size, halfway through, I realized that I probably could make 9 repeats size with this yarn. So, I frogged the whole thing and started all over again.
