What are you most proud of? The ribbons gather the shawl into two sections that hang effortlessly on the arms, so it stays in place without fussing. The fluidity and drape from using the pure silk yarn are beautiful. The shawl is wonderfully soft and has a subtle sheen that gives depth to the color.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the markers between the border and the main section of the shawl. I did not use them, and had to frog a couple of times when I forgot to change from knit to purl. I also recommend blocking, particularly if the ribbons are going to be used.

The shawl is lovely and using pure silk makes is wonderfully luxurious

Thanks for your kind words! I really like the way it came out. The silk gives it a luxurious feel and it drapes beautifully. I haven't even bothered to photograph it without the ribbons, its just not as interesting. Thanks!
