I listed my unfinished projects earlier today, and confessed that I'm "plagued" with startitis.I thought I could control it, but no...

I want to knit Hawthorne with yarn from my stash. I have enough Sundara Aran Silky Merino to make it, but I'd like to know if anyone has used a yarn like this single ply, relatively dense. I checked the pattern on Ravelry, and ASM has been used several times, but the knitters' project notes weren't very helpful.

Thanks for any help you can give me I'm not desperate, but I'm a little obsessed. Nothing new!

Thanks, all! I had the answer right in my living room a Tuscany shawl that I made a few years ago in ASM. I didn't even need to swatch. I have plenty of yarn (what a silly notion, Jayme, not enough Sundara ). Off I go!

I'd say swatch and see. The great thing about a shawl is that it doesn't have to fit or get gauge. Swatch until you like the drape and then go for it! Assuming of course you have enough yarn that is...

A friend used a single ply (Mano's Maxima). She was a tight knitter and the shawl is a bit "stiff and heavy" without a lot of drape. But it's very pretty.

Why don't you knit a swatch to see how the yarn drapes then "go for it!"

And I hear you about startitis! I'm working today to finish a few things so I can cast on new projects tomorrow

How do.

Although I don't have any ideas for you, Jane, I wanted to say that I am glad to see your post here - the brain trust that is KR is huge & I bet you have people thinking of what to use.
