Mom's Expensive Shawl, Take II

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Morning Surf Scarf Link to website or photo www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/a6.shtm What advice would you give someone starting this project? As gorgeous as the Artyarns Ensemble Glitter yarn is, it was a pain to work with. The cashmere and silk threads kept on wanting to "worm" around the metallic thread. I ended up tensioning my yarn differently (i.e. loosely) and that seemed to help.

Q&A with iheartmytho

Mela asked:
Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern. Any suggestion for using a different yarn?
iheartmytho answered:
I would think any variegated or self striping yarn would look gorgeous in this pattern. Perhaps something with bamboo or silk in it to give it a bit of drape.
