If I can manage to work out how to make them the right size, I'll post piccies.  The one I'm doing atm is in peppermint chunky with cream aran weight and three shades of brown four ply.  A couple of people have said it reminds them of mint chocolate ice cream.

Now why didn't you do that sooner?  I could have bought one from you.  I'm enjoying working with the needles.

Unfortunately we have been ultra busy and I'm not sure just yet if it will be part of our range or just custom made.   
You must get some cotton yarn and try a shawl for the summer in linen stitch they are amazing an very popular. I'm not getting as much time to knit as I have to do a spring/summer range which is more sewing

Mmm.  I'll do that.  I always used to wear a huge triangular shawl made from handspun wool.  Wonder what happened to it.
