Sundae Best

I love the way this has turned out. Almost 3 skeins has produced a drapey, heavy, triangular shawl that I’ve turned into a cape with the addition of some little buttons.
The yarn, Damask115 by Rowan is DK / 8 ply Linen, Rayon, Acrylic. It's been discontinued at my LYS (Local Yarn Shop)which is a bit disappointing. If I could find a different colour, I'd knit one for myself.

This one is for my Neice-in-Law's birthday. Why Sundae Best? The colour reminds me of the ice-cream sundaes of my childhood.
