Another Mystery

We got a swatch pattern at the Mystery Shawl ALong. So I knitted it up. This time I used very fine yarn(?). Don't know what this is I am using either. It is a light silvery gray color. It is really thin and on a cone shaped spool. I did look inside and it says:
I. B. Silk Corp, New York, Rayon & Cotton Threads. But that is all it says, so I dont' know exactly what it is. But it does make some lacey fabric. Another mystery fiber, fitting for the project huh?

I hope this will make for a good shawl. I have never made one, so we shall see. Here's the little swatch. I couldn't get it to come in any clearer. Oh to have a scanner, or a camera that isn't crappy.

I think it looks gorgeous. Like a Fairy Shawl would look. Light and delitcate. The pattern stands out nicely too.

Are you my twin? I am knitting on the Silk Corset; I am knitting on Rosy Fingered Dawn; I am swatching for the Mystery Shawl. Were we separated at birth, or what?

I love your swatch. I was getting worried that my yarn (Artisan Lace Merino) would be too skinny. I see your yarn and I get hope for mine.
