I did the daisies shawl on addis (3mm, I think) - the yarn was heavy enough not to require really sharp points.  But when I started the kidsilk haze birdseye shawl on 2mm addis, it was a nightmare.  I ran out and picked up a cheapo Susan Bates circular (aluminum?) with sharper points and that's working much better.

Did you ever make the bird's eye shawl? Because I'm making it right now. (Just started, I've done about 10 rows..) I would love to see how it turned out.

And the daisies shawl looks amazing!!!

Actually, yes. It's still a work in progress, though. I've been doing it in kidsilk haze, and on very small needles, so it's going very slowly.

I hadn't worked on it in ages when I took it out the other day. In such a small gauge, the pattern is very subtle. I breifly wondered whether it was worth continuing with it. The thought of ripping out that mohair gives me hives though.

I've also co-opted the needle I was using for use on another project.

I love the stitch pattern, though. It's really unusual and I'd like to work it in a thicker, smoother yarn that shows it better.

What yarn are you using?
