Oh yeah, I have this book from the library Greetings From Knit Cafe and she has a pattern in there for a simple, airy beautiful shawl. And it's done with yarn that is 70% mohair and 30% silk. But you have to have the book.
Her shawl is pink too! (but it doesn't require as much yarn as you have)
Do you like shawls? Being in Quebec it seems you might. (cold I mean)
