Rosi put most of this gorgeous silk wool yarn on the swap table at the Knitter’s Review retreat last year, and I snapped it up.  Now that the weather is starting to cool a bit and this year’s retreat is approaching, I figured it was time to get to work on it.  I swatched and swatched one watery lace pattern after another, and finally settled on good old feather and fan.  I wove in all the the ends last night while hanging out with friends, and immediately put it on.  It’s a wonder I took it off again. 

I may owe my pal Rosi a really nice gift.  I think I even have enough of the yarn to do this again.  Joy!

    You just an amazing knack for knowing exactly what to do with colors. Beautiful shawl. Wait ’til you see what I have for you this year!
    BTW, your company at KR Retreat is a gift all by itself.

    Ooh, that’s beautiful. I thought about doing a crochet wave afgan, but never did. The urge to work with yarn always hits when the weather turns cool. I will actually be hitting a yarn store today, thought not for knitting!(dolly hair) Someday I’ll learn how to knit!
