handspun yarn made from handdyed samples of merino, cashmere, silk etc.
What was your inspiration?
I collected several fiber samples at a local spinning fair. At home, I dyed them in two different tones of purple. With some predyed merino added, I carded all into a lofty batt. With just 46g, it was clear that it had to be a lace project. After some pondering, I decided on working the shawl in a non-typical way and to emphasize the construction with patterns that form a straight line.
What are you most proud of?
This is the kind of lace pattern that I love - you can work it in any size so you can make the most of a skein!
