Shawllapalooza: Looking for a Mind at Work

My love for the musical "Hamilton" is too much for one shawl alone...
Luckily, there are shawl designers who share my leanings:

The Schuyler Sisters [Rav] by Theresa Bandy; knit with over 500 yards of madelinetosh Tosh DK in colorways Arctic, Brick Dust, and Deep

The design is full of connections to the characters of Angelica Schuyler and her sister Eliza Hamilton, with the added presence of Eliza's husband Alexander, pulling them together and apart:

I chose the colors specifically to be reminiscent of the Ravenclaw colors found in the HP books (rather than the movies); if I had to do it over again, the darker blue would not be so very very dark, but the end result is still pretty great, bold and comfortably cozy.
