Not much more to say except that the cashmere scarf is finished (will post a photo after it is blocked). My next project is the Faux Russian Shawl from Gathering of Lace. I am using Knitpicks lace-weight Shadow in Sunset. This was my last purchase before going on the stash diet. The construction is interesting -- knit the bottom edging, then pick up all the way across to begin the body and continue on up, doing both side edgings as you go along. There are no seams in this shawl. Unfortunately the row numbering for the edging (16 row repeat) is different from that of the body (95 row repeat), which makes for a little headache, and, even though I am only on row 5, I think that I made a mistake on row 1.
