Silk and linen traingle shawl

Triangle shawl, seed stitch, two silk yarns and a nylon core with linen paper flags yarn, size 3 bamboo cable needle

The fine gauge of this piece resulting in a couple years between start and finish.  All the yarns are from Habu textiles, although I bought them in different places. For this shawl I pre-cut lengths of each yarn and then as I knit along I chose and incorporated each strand.  So the fabric has random areas of each of the yarns.  The silks are soft, and the linen flags are just a bit crispy now, but will soften as they are washed.
