Before you can grow too accustomed to the stitch pattern you're working on, it shifts into a different one. I always appreciate that. I loved working on it. In case you didn't know, this shawl was designed by Andrea Mowry. But you already knew that. At the moment, there are about 90 other finished versions, in completely different color combos on Ravelry, if you're interested.
Details: I knit this using size US 4 circulars and Gynx Yarns Targhee Dk base. I don't think Laura is planning to carry this base anymore, but there was a little left in her shop at a discounted price. I think I mentioned the fact that it takes dye differently than her superwash bases, but it still produces deep, lovely tonals. I found Fog, Goth Girl, and an experimental dye lot in the right amounts in the shop and took a chance that they would look good together in person. (You can see how her Goth Girl dyes up in superwash here and here, because apparently I'm a fan of the colorway.)
The Targhee definitely had a different feel than superwash would. I know lots of knitters feel uncomfortable with non-superwash against their neck of head, but it doesn't bother me. Whatever I trade on softness, I get back in longevity and body. This yarn had some bounce and body to it. It felt a bit more rustic and durable than my go-to 100% wool brands. It is going to last and last. Even things like my big dog jumping up to greet me and her rough paw pads catching in the fiber won't disturb it's beauty. She's not supposed to do that, by the way.
