Design Inspiration: Firebird Flight Shawl

I was inspired to knit my Firebird Flight Shawl by the silky drape and color shifts of Panda Silk in Firebird.
This is a fingering-weight yarn that is 52% bamboo, 43% Merino wool and 5% silk. It is 204 yards in 1.76 oz per skein or 187 meters in 50 grams. It is gorgeous!
The shawl’s unusual shape is part yarn-saving triangle, and part figure-flattering hexagon, with fun scalloped edges, too.
Luckily, when it was ready for photography, I was visiting my sister and my baby niece. I took the chance to include this special moment in their lives in the shawl's photographs.
