Yay! Congratulations! :woohoo:

It is such a great scarf and it ties so beautifully and you can choose which section of the scarf to highlight. The colorway you bought is so classic!

I'm glad we are scarf siblings now :smile:
Valmont,

I'll post photos as soon as it arrives. Your photos of yours and your comments about it sure helped in the decision.

it's "only" taken me 3 weeks to post a photo of my wonderful C en C stole. I love it, it ties/hangs wonderfully and you are right that you can arrange it in different ways to highlight different parts of the design.

It looks like it was made for you! I´ve had the CenC in two colourways, and it´s an amazing GM! I´m sad that I sold the most vivid one (vert/jaune/lilac) it was stunning.

Valmont, MaggyH and Lovely 64,

thanks so much for you comments. MaggyH, the bracelet is a Mars and Valentine from one of their 2010 collections. Another photo below. I had put the shawl on the table with the bracelet, went off to get the phone to take a photo, came back to find one very sweet soft pawed claws in (thank goodness!) kitty on the shawl. Evidently she likes it too. I'm sorry the lighting and focus aren't better--it's nighttime artificial light.

Thank you for posting this photo, it's a very pretty bracelet. Good job those tiny paws of your sweet kitty didn't extend the claws into your new shawl!

Does anyone know if Carré en Carrés is issued in 140 cm silk twill plume or silk twill lavé or mousseline, and if so, when was that? I have searched but didn't find anything but cashmere/silk.
