I did the feather and fan stitch, and I made it in the white. I also really
liked the cream and considered making it in the cream; I may knit one in the cream still. I'll try to post a pic soon. I have a couple of really cool vintage pins that were my great-grandmother's that compliment the style of the shawl really nicely, which works out great, since I didn't really have anything quite right to wear them with (but now I do!
). The shawl knit up a bit wider than I thought it would when I did a gauge swatch which actually worked out great
, because I really like the way it hangs now when I wear it (an accident that actually worked out to my advantage!
I'm glad (relieved!) to hear that this yarn isn't typically a problem, but nevertheless, I will be careful when washing it. Typically, I don't need to wash my shawls very often, but with this one being white--and given the fact that I'm a bit accident prone
--it will require more washing than my other shawls I'm sure.
