I am having many problems with the Rock Island Shawl and it was driving me crazy. I needed something to feel accomplished.
This is what I had in the stash
Adrienne Vittadini's Daniella 4 skeins @ $12.95 back in 1993
from Wooly Knits in McLean, VA (now closed)
#8 needle for body
#9 needle for border
#10 for bind off
white is the colorway on this Aran weight yarn
10% cashmere and 90% extra fine merino
96 yds per skein
I really like this shawl and wear it when I can. The only issue is that is does not cover the upper chest area, but does great on the back and shoulders.
The yarn is so soft and warm. I can't believe I waited over 10 years to use it.
