The alpaca/merino/tussah....did you blend that yourself? I have about 24 oz. of a similar blend which is mostly tan in color. It came from Ohio Valley Fibers. It's been sitting in a box for a couple years. But it's always whispered, "lace" to me.

PS: The beaded shawl is gorgeous!!

I bought the fiber from Woodland Woolworks. It was processed in England, I think, and is 50% alpaca/30% merino/20% tussah. A delight to spin, especially for us frog hair spinners!

The beaded shawl is beyond gorgeous. I hope this one's for you.

    A collection of knitted lace shawls, stoles and wimples. Many were done in handspun yarn. Click on an image for a larger picture and description, plus charts for some.

Socks and small knits

  • Keesmere Ski Hat
    These are all handknitted socks and other small items. Most of these were knitted from my own handspun yarn. Click on an image for a larger picture and description, plus charts for some.

    (Most of the Celtic designs came from Celtic Charted Designs by Co Spinhoven, an excellent and inexpensive resource.)

Doll Knits

    A collection of (mostly) knitted doll clothing.

Sweaters

  • Infant's Aran pullover
    Back in the dark ages (as in pre-1987), I used to knit sweaters. Nowadays, I rarely do, so I'll use this album to record some of what I have done and may yet to be.

Blankets and woven items

  • Shadow weave plaid towel
    Mostly handwoven items, mostly from commercial yarns.

Yarns and fiber

  • Storm Clouds yarn
