Thanks! I'm currently knitting another Mara shawl for myself using a similar yarn, but this time I'm using a US 10.5. It's working out great. The yarn is Ella Rae "Latte". Although its bulky weight, it's working out just about the same as Malabrigo Merino. I'm hoping that by using a heavier (single ply) yarn that it won't take soooooo lonnnnnng to reach the required 46" width in garter stitch before starting the fun part, the ruffle.

LOL, you are so right! I love the yarn, and the bulky weight should make a warm and cozy Mara, too. I'll be curious to hear how many stitches you have across the 46" wingspan using the bulky weight yarn. Can't wait to see the completed shawl!
