Simmer Dim Wrap

I've been knitting for a million years and this is my first shawl. This is the Simmer Dim wrap
by Gudrun Johnston. I love her patterns, I also made her pattern Audrey in unst, which was so well written. This shawl knits up very quickly. The center triangle is knit using the Shetland construction method, which makes loops in the beginning of every row, making it very easy to pick up all and knit the rest of the shawl.  
I used one skein of madelinetosh eyre light, that I bought on the madelinetosh etsy page. The yarn is super soft, and a gorgeous color. The last two things I have made with madelinetosh have been impossible to wind and knit from the skein. It is constantly getting caught on itself, it really slows down the progress when you have to stop all the time and untangle. Anyway, this is a simple and fast pattern that would be great for anyone.
