Fine lace shawl

We have some people in the group who can produce very fine spinning , fine knitting and crochet and some who can do both. Jan B can produce very fine spinning and she can knit very finely too. This shawl is made from commercial alpaca but Jan is capable of spinning her own alpaca just as finely . She is very passionate about alpacas and their yarn and so she likes to support alpaca yarn producers too. Patience is a virtue when it comes to fine knitting. You also need the right needles and then plenty of stitch markers so you keep control of the pattern across what can become a huge number of stitches. This is the work of someone who knows how to do things very carefully and methodically. It is a superb shawl and we loved the burgundy colour of it. So rich.

Kristin Omdahl has some lovely lace shawls on her site. They are not all complicated. Where it says to click here , you need to click on the picture above and it will take you to the pattern. Kristin loves lacework and it shows.
