I finished a fun shawl this month, its Abyssal by Karen and Karyn. It is basically a feather and fan border pattern, with the body knit in short rows.
I used Cascade Heritage Silk Paints, it is a 85% Merino superwash wool, and 15% mulberry silk, fingering weight. This was a dream to knit with, so soft and cuddly, but no little stray fibers to get in your eyes. My cat loved this yarn too!
If I ever knit this again, I would make one change, I would switch to one size smaller circulars when knitting the body. It lays a bit flat, and I think a smaller needle size would take better advantage of the loft of this yarn.
Just might give this as a Christmas gift.....
