I've finally gotten around to trying out the Black Pearl yarn I bought last fall (pink and grey) and I'm knitting it up into this Florence shawl. So far the stripes are done and I'm starting on the lace border.
The Black Pearl yarn has a lovely smooth feel and a pretty sheen to it. The yarn is not quite a solid color --there's some variation with the dye but it's very subtle and I like it.
This has been a VERY simple pattern so far - I'll let you know if I feel the same after I've completed the lace border.
