Hi there!

I was so excited when I read about this KAL on Margene's blog because it fit perfectly with a project I was starting. A shawl (design yet to be determined) from handspun (and dyed) yarn.

I'm a new spinner and I've been trying out different fibers as part of my learning process. A while ago I got a bit of Blue Faced Leicester and dyed it up in shades of violet. As I spun it I fel in love. It's much finer than anything I've spun to date. Suddenly and idea was born. I decided to get more and dye it in dark blue and ply the 2 colors together and against itself and turn it all into a shawl.

Here's where I'm at so far. I've completed 3 bobbins and there is still a little left to spin. The trick will be to figure out just how much I have in the end and find the perfect pattern to show off the color changes.
