I finished this one a few weeks ago - just waited for the blocking wires to arrive.
I wasn't very impressed with the wires - too thick to be inserted right at the edge and difficult to handle... but using millions of pins instead would have been worst I guess.
Back to the shawl. It is designed by Eugen Beugler, very easy (and boring) pattern - drives you crazy after a while :)). (I know now how Penelope must have been felt doing the same thing over and over again)
Yarn: I've used 5 balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze - in Pearl.
It is a great lace weight silk/mohair yarn - it was a real pleasure to knit with.
