Having bought this yarn I really wanted to make something special with it. I bought it as a hank, so I first had to wind it into balls. Having done that I realised that I didn’t have much yarn to work with, so I decided to make a shawl. I consulted all my knitting books for shawl ideas (deciding against getting lost in the interwebs, I did want to get the project started this winter!).
