Hello All

I'm really looking forward to all the learning, I'm new to blogs and to lace knitting. Hopefully I won't be too much of a pest :) I'll be knitting with some of my handspun, it's 70% alpaca 30% silk and about 18 wpi in 3ply. I haven't measured the singles. The alpaca is from Rudy and is a light latte color and the silk is some handpainted I bought that has teal, cocoa, gold and some darker blue. Thanks so much for the invitation to join the Elegantly Simple Triangular Shawl Knitalong.

Nan, I'm looking forward to it as well. Sounds like you have a beautiful yarn. I envied the spinners and Sheep to Shawl today and wish some of them would join us. I need to select the yarn I'm going to use and am considering tencel in one of the lighter colorways.

The yarn you are handspinning sounds lovely. Makes me want to get my spinning wheel to turning. :) If you could take pics of your fibers and yarn to post, that would be great. I think everyone will be interested to see how your fibers transform into yarn and then into a lovely lace shawl! Jackie E-S
