What advice would you give someone starting this project? This crescent-shaped shawl begins with a strip of lace edging worked on only 19 to 23 sts with an 8-row repeat. The short-rowed body of the shawl is an easy, very lacy one-row stitch pattern that works up in a jiffy.

Beautiful once again! Your yarn is breathtaking. What needles are you using, they look so pointy?

The needles are Hiya Hiya Sharps. Thanks for the compliments on the yarn. It is a singles of dark blue merino/silk blend that I plied with a ply of hand-drafted hand-dyed variegated silk hanky (mawata). The color gradations of the silk hanky ply make it distinctive, imho. In fact, this should inspire me to spin some more of this type yarn!
