Warm Orenburg Triangle finished

It is knit in pieces but the joins are almost invisible and don't involve any sewing. I used Impressions "A Touch of Twist" in two colours: Blue Morning and Frozen earth. Sounds kind of ironic, doesn't it? Well I picked the yarn first and then learned the names of the colours. Here's how it went:
