I worked this pattern with a new, to me, yarn by Cedar House Yarns, Sapling Sock in a gorgeous light blue color. The yarn was an absolute delight to work with. I had no issues with it splitting on me and there were no irregularity in the hank of yarn that I worked with. It washed up well, with just a little bit of dye bleeding out into the water (hardly noticeable). The shawl blocked out well, is super soft and drapes well.
I made a few adjustments to the pattern, as I really like having a slip stitch selvage stitch on the edges of my shawls whenever possible. You can find the exact adjustments on my project page at Ravelry. If you would like to see the finished shawl, it will be on display as a shop sample at Quintessential Knits in Duvall, WA.
