Once again I started with natural merino roving from R. H. Lindsay

Which I spun into singles and dyed mint green (my camera is showing it blue, but promise, it's mint green)

Plied my merino with cobweb bamboo singles (the colors look different for some reason, second is more true to color)


Knit it (my first lace, and biggest knit item yet)

Blocked it


Here is the end result

It look great! I love how small it is compared to most shawls I see. A very nice change, well done! Grin

Pretty color combination, and I love the smaller size.  Great job!
