Lace Leaf Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark
Started: August 2, 2006
Finished: May 26, 2008
Yarn used: Dale Baby Ull, in darkish true red, no idea about the number anymore, and some of my first handspun. 117 yarns or mohairy purple goodness.
Why I would ever mix red and purple: Because my mom is into that whole red with purple thing, and this was done for her. I don’t think she knows that I was doing it for her, and it’s good thing because it surely took me long enough to get around to finishing it.

And if that’s not enough, I’ve got some spinning photos for you. The gold singles from Loop were done ages ago and I just finally got around to taking a photo. The stuff on the bobbins is Party Roving from MSW last year.

    I like the red/purple combo. And using your own handspun–how fun! I looks fabulous.

    Party yarn! Woot! Break out the beverages! And the money shot of the shawl is stupendous! How many exclamations can I put in one comment?! Wow! that is a lot of exclamation marks!!! But the shawl is so nice! It deserves exclamation marks! (note, I almost spelled exclamation as sexclamation….)
