A New FreeForm Shawl
I worked on some fun spinning this last week, including this Super Sparkly Soft and Silky lace weight. It's a blend of alpaca, merino, bfl and silk, plus generous quantities of sparkle. I'm working on a freeform shawl and I needed a light weight, glossy yarn that was delicate, but with a lot of personality so that it wouldn't get lost in all the texture of my art yarn.
I'm using it to embellish this fabric I knit with some of my handspun art yarn. It's hard to capture the pretty opalescence, but I think this little lace weight holds its own amongst all the curls, twirls and cocoons.
I hope you have had a wonderful week, I'm on my way to visit Andrea and check out all the happy creative people at WonderWhy's Fiber Arts Friday!
