I've sat and dreamed about this shawl since I saw the pattern , months ago . I couldn't help but cast on a fortnight ago when I saw there was KAL.
I'm using handpainted yarns ( 'brown berries' merino laceweight ) on 3.75 mm needles (think that's US #5 ) .
I swatched using #3's and #4's but preferred the 'knit' from the #5's .
I'm 1/2 way through the 4th repeat in the first chart . (there is light at the end of the stockingette tunnel!) and looking forward to starting the feather charts ... hopefully next week !
