cotton ribbon shawl

This also came out of the old in-progress bag and I'm loving it once more.  I am using a cotton ribbon yarn and making a very large shawl.  The needles are size 10 and they are plastic - something I haven't used in awhile.  I've made a two-stitch selvedge of garter stitch, and then made widely spaced ribs with a reverse stockinette background.  I am knitting the short rows so the ribs will actually form horizontal lines once the shawl is complete.  I found this yarn on sale at Common Thread in Saratoga Springs, NY the last time I visited there in early December.
