My First Post....


I cast on yesterday afternoon and got a couple of repeats done of the main pattern. I love the colours in this yarn I dyed myself but don't think it works for lace, so I think when the shawl is finished I will over-dye it to unify the colours or I feel it will detract from the pattern......

The yarn is from Yarn Treehouse on ebay and is 100% wool, quite fine, so I have doubled the yarn before dying to give the correct weight for the pattern.... I am using KP Options 3.5mm

It looks great so far.

I tend to agree with you, but I do think its a matter of taste. I used multicoloured yarn for my Flower Basket Shawl and I am not happy with it either.
So it will be a present ;)
