Mountain Top Alpacas handspun in "Mardi Gras" though it looks more like something out of Lisa Frank
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to finally go through my Craftsy course on Lace knitting with Laura Nelkin
What are you most proud of?
I'm very proud that this outrageous yarn choice doesn't completely overwhelm the lace pattern. I just really wanted to use this seizure-inducing yarn.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't do what I did. Use a solid or semi-solid yarn or something with very little variegation in the same color family. Your shawl will look much more respectable than mine.
