I use 8/4 cotton rug warp sett at 12 ends per inch. Inexpensive, absorbent, long lasting, lots of colors.

Nice yarn reworks beautifully. If you screw up, you can just start over, no harm done!

I love this shawl. I made it in a somber gray/purple. It's beautiful, but yours is also very cheerful!

What? No ribbing above the heel? I would frog back to the top of the heel and work k2, p2 rib or add a purl stitch between the cables.

It doesnt have to be combed or carded. I MHO, put it into mesh bags, trying not to disturb/tangle the fibers, and don't stuff them tight. Dunk these in warm water several times to rinse out the sand. I do this part outdoors so the plumbing pipes aren't gunked up. Let it dry, then spin it. You can start with a few bags and wash as you go.

I think that I would just crochet around the edges.

If there is a noticeable difference, you could knit to the last five inches and switch back to the wooden needles. The blanket would have a subtle border.

A very large percentage of the world's yarn is made in the middle east. It's kind of a big mess there right now.

Imho those nebs were saved and dyed. They were added back in the final carding to produce a tweed yarn. It will be beautiful. You can just leave them where they lie on the surface of your yarn. If you do a hot to cold water dip or just thwack your skein a few times while it's wet, the tweedy nibs will hold better in the finished garment. They do make consistent
drafting a little iffy, creating even more texture. ut

Love the shawl collar! Nice work!

It's beautiful as it is and fringe is hard to live with. So, in a word, no.

Worth every minute! It's just beautiful!
