What is happening this week Over the Rainbow?

Well, I am knitting a lovely, light shawl. I am looking forward to the summer and the weather getting better. This lacy shawl is the perfect project to occupy myself with. It will be ideal as an elegant accessory for a special event or evening out: in white it would be graceful piece to accompany a wedding dress or choose a colour to complement that special dress you already have. The main body of the shawl is already complete and I am just finishing off the border. The yarn I am using is a single-ply Malabrigo Lace – what would you knit it from?

When I am not working on the shawl, I am spinning. This yarn is for a friend of mine and I am halfway through. The fibre is a really great merino-silk blend, so nice to work with and really soft too. Isn’t it great to see how the colours change as the rowing becomes yarn?  

Happy knitting
