It was enjoyable to knit, with a row repeat pattern that was easy to remember. However the picot bind of instructions led to some serious head scratching and frustration, and I abandoned the project at this stage for a few weeks. When I returned to it, I found that I was able to puzzle it out, but I think the instructions are not clearly written for this section.
In progress, using a project bag which was a gift from the lovely Roobeedoo
The resulting shawl is really long and quite narrow (240 cm long!) but I think it's very elegant and the perfect use for a single skein of 4 ply.

Obviously a damp shawl makes the perfect place for feline relaxing
The yawn I used was West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply in Cayenne Pepper from their spice rack range. I was looking for a solid, vibrant red, and I can't remember how I found this one, but it's lovely quality. I bought it directly from WYS online and they have some lovely colours - a mix of bright and muted shades that work together beautifully. I love the shades in this Illustrious range - gorgeous!
Ysolda Strokkur sweater at some point during Autumn/Winter, or maybe an cardigan.
