My first Spun Stitches



I finished

this shawl early this spring. I spun the yarn from suri alpaca and silk then plied singles from both together for a two-ply lace yarn. It took me six months because of the enormity of the project. This is the Wing-of-the-Moth shawl pattern which can be found at knitspot.com .

Until next time...
