My shawl was knit with Hand Maiden Mini Maiden yarn, in the "Rose Garden" colorway. I completed the shawl with only 12" of yarn remaining-- that's a bit too close for comfort! The pattern was well written and simple to follow. The yarn is a joy to work with, and was the easiest to block I've ever done. I am so pleased with the end results, and wish the photo did the yarn and shawl justice!
