Silk and Wool

I made another Travelling Woman Shawl.  I kind of love this pattern.  It is a pretty easy lace pattern and takes very little yarn, even with an extra repeat thrown in to make it a little larger.

I blocked it out it the little space in my room.  Figured it wasn't yet appropriate to start blocking projects in the middle of the living room.  Will introduce the roommie to my woolie craziness a little at a time. 

An close-up of the stitch pattern.  I made it from the silk/merino yarn I got in Dublin.
It is very light and airy.  Not sure how to wear it or what to wear it with.  Suggestions?

  1. Maybe the way to get roomie to like woolie craziness is to make her something! :)

    Suggestions: tank tops (either tight or flowy/drapey), sun dresses (A-line?), turtle-neck during the winter
