Silk Chenille Shawl

I made this in 2003, or something like that. It's made from two skeins of La Fiesta's silk chenille yarn called Chinchilla. I don't remember the color way. I just casted on 2 stitches and increased a stitch every other row until I used up one skein, and then subtracted a stitch to use the other skein. I remember spending a day trying to wind one of the skeins into a ball. Several times I've had problems with La Fiesta's yarns. They don't sell skeins as much as they sell intricate bundles of knots. It's knitted on size 15 needles, or something ridiculous. The shape of the stitches has not held up, but it's soft and warm.
