........what my next project from VTL will be. Didn't really fancy knitting the Syrian Shawl as I thought it looked a bit boring but I've got this gorgeous 4ply cashmere/silk yarn from Posh Yarn which I couldn't decide what to knit with so I tried it in this pattern and I lvoe it. Completely different look than in the book where it's knitted in KidSilk Haze on 4.5mm needles. I'm using a 4ply yarn on 4mm needles. But I think it shows off the colours well. My youngest daughter loves it and wants it. But its luxury cashmere/silk and she is only 8. So not sure if I'll risk giving it to her. We'll see.
