Cashmere Shawl Beginnings

Here is my Chart A in cashmere. It is pinned out instead of blocked. The cashmere has a wonderful hand, but is rather springy. I am using size 8 bamboo needles, and though this looks like a really open fabric, I think it will block out nicely, and the spring in the yarn will prevent it from being too loopy.

Any thoughts from more experienced knitters before I continue?

Blessings, Lark

Oh wow Lark! Yum! I can't wait to see that as it grows! I think you have a perfect combination right there! Cashmere doesn't like to be blocked too vigorously, if I remember correctly, as it isn't resilient, but just like that will be brilliant!

Your shawl at this stage looks very pretty.
What is the brand and color name of the yarn you are using?
Is it lace weight or heavier? I am asking because I am looking for a yarn for my shawl.
