I noticed Ann, the owner of The Yarn Shop at Words of Life, was working on a great looking shawl last time I was at the shop. The pattern is called "Trillian" and I just loved the way it looked. I thought about the yarn Ann was using; it's a very subtle variegated yarn in shades of green. It got me looking at the yarn in my stash and I thought this pretty yarn with shades of red and orange would also make a nice Trillian.
The yarn I am using is Liberty Fibers Fingering Weight Merino Superwash in the "Chinese Lacquer" colorway. My friend, Belinda, gifted me this yarn after she took a trip to New York.
This pattern calls for larger needles than I am using. I am using 2.75 mm needles (40 inch circular needle).
