New Project- Feather and Fan Shawl

In between several loads of laundry, I cast on this new project that would be great to take with me on my trip to Europe next month. It will be great to dress up a casual outfit for evening, especially in Paris. Oooh la la! Not to put any pressure on myself, I have only one month to finish it. I am not so great with lace yet, and my needles are a little blunt and the yarn a little slippery, so lets see how far I get. I am using Rick Rack II from Interlacements in color 120, Mountain Jewel. If I don't work on any other project for this month, it may be doable and I do have the trip to California next weekend, with flights and airport waiting time.
This afternoon, I met my knitting friend Stacy at the Tattered Cover coffee shop for a couple of hours of coffee, knitting and chatter. We took a couple of classes together at the knitting shop this winter and I wore my Kauni sweater for the first time. I half expected her to wear hers as well. I had been worried it was too warm already, but today it snowed again and was perfect. I will test it out on the work crowd as well tomorrow.

Very pretty! What's the fiber content of the yarn? I couldn't find it on their website.

I'm very jealous about your trip to Europe!

Thanks for your lovely comments. I truly appreciate the sentiment.
