Here is my Seraphina Shawl in Tahki/Charles Capri. I LOVE this pattern. It was super easy once it got going, and the shape is wonderful. It drapes perfectly. I had purchased this yarn off yarn.com and tried 3 different patterns before making this one. I kept running out of yarn, I had 10 balls but they were just 52 yards per ball :( I made this one with a size P hook, and just stopped when the yarn ran out. But it is a nice length. The yarn is an Egyptian cotton tape yarn, it has a nice sheen and is very soft. This is now my favorite church shawl.
And I fell so in love with the pattern that I have 2 more in progress and 1 that I have purchased the yarn for! I am making one for my MIL, and two SIL in England. I had been struggling with what to make them and even started something for my MIL, but ran out of yarn. But I think this is perfect. I am making one in Wendy Aran, one it Cotton Plus (this is turning out GREAT!!) and one in Tia Cara. Pics will be posting soon because they are making up fast!
