Finished shawl - dark

Triangle shawl, mixed fibers: nylon, rayon, mohair, lurex, garter stitch, size 9 aluminum cable needle, 24 in.

I ran into this gorgeous black/brown "fluff" yarn in the Orphan Room at the yarn shop in Great Barrington Mass. I think it's called Wonderful Things. I have a hard time shopping there because they have mold in the ceiling and they just put out those bathroom crystal deodorizers. So after about five minutes my whole respiratory system just wants to crawl up and out. But this yarn sang to me, so I got it. I had to air it out for several days. It's been a great pleasure to mix it with various railroad yarns I have and to stay in the very dark value range. Yum! It's very slinky.
