It turned out beautifully. This was a great brioche shawl that anyone with some intermediate brioche experience can knit.
My shawl used beautiful Malabrigo Arroyo (sport weight) in colorways Plomo, Lavanda and Talisman. I purchased these online from Eat. Sleep. Knit., an awesome online local yarn shop in Dallas, Georgia. My project notes are here.
This is an interesting shape and is particularly cozy bundled up around your neck.
