A little about the yarn...and the shawl. The yarn is Manos Lace. It's a baby alpaca/silk/cashmere blend. Very decadent!! A dream to knit with. There's just enough color variation to make the stockinette parts of the shawl interesting without hiding the lace. The shawl itself is knit from the border up. It's semi circular with some beaded lace and nupps.
The other skein of very lovely yarn was acquired when I went to visit my friend's alpaca ranch. She has a cute little shop on the premises and I simply couldn't leave this lovely skein behind. It is 100% baby alpaca lace weight. There is a whopping 870 yards in the skein. Incredibly soft to the touch. Not quite sure what it will be. Maybe a lovely Estonian lace piece. I just love the soft green color of the yarn.
