Polwarth: Shawl Pattern TBA

Hello -- Thank you for allowing me to spin and knit with you. This is my first KAL -- so I am very excited. I have been spinning for a couple years. Now while the real challenge for me would be to spin this shawl on my drop spindle, I think this is going to be one for the spinning wheel.

Here's my plan: I have some beautiful, white polwarth locks:

They are soooo soft. I am going to card them with my hand carders into rolags. Spin them on my wheel. And then dye them with indigo. I don't exactly have a shawl pattern in mind but I can't wait to poke around and see what I find!

Sounds wonderful! I can't wait to watch the process. Where do you get your indigo dye?

Those locks are like a big fluffy cloud! :-) I bet they will be a joy to spin.
