2-ply Merino wool (undyed) lace-weight
What was your inspiration?
This was a class exercise. I had recently acquired some very lovely 2-ply lace weight merino wool and decided to use this rather than the recommended yarns. Thus the need to made the pattern adjustments for increasing the size because I used a very fine yarn.
What are you most proud of?
This shawl has a marvelous drape and weighs only 3.25 oz (91 grams). It is feather soft and I very much enjoyed working with it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The pattern instructions are clear and easy to follow -- so enjoy the project. It works up relatively quickly and produces a nice product.
