"Hello friends! I’ve been knitting for a very, very long time, and I’ve worked with so many weights of yarn skeins; as small as 1.76 oz. / 50 grams and as large as 5.30 oz. / 150 gram. Last September, I went into a shop in Erbil’s bazaar, and came upon a huge skein that weighs 12.32 oz. / 350 grams, with a rather nice gradient of red to black and back. I ended up buying it, even though I had no Idea what I would do with it at the time. I went back home and took a closer look at the skein’s materials: wool and alpaca (there is acrylic and polyester too) and I thought to myself it would be great to make it into a shawl, suitable for a really cold winter evening event. It was hard for me to knit this particular yarn at first; the stitches often got tangled, even worse was when I made a mistake and had to undo a row or two. Nevertheless, I powered through, and the skein finally turned into an elegant shawl."

That is absolutely beautiful.

The colours in this shawl looks amazing. You did a brilliant job. I don't think I would have the patience or skills to knit one. I don't usually comment on knitting patterns, but your one is stunning.
