I've decided to plunge in to the knitting world again and try my first shawl. Kirsten Kapur is a great designer and I've had my eye on a few of her patterns. She has a Summer Shawl Knitalong going, so this is a perfect time to give it a whirl. I picked out Cladonia, which I think is really beautiful in a solid color. I'll be using some stashed yarn, Bristol Yarn Gallery's Buckingham, in lavender. This is a very soft yarn made of baby alpaca and silk. The deadline for this knitalong is September 23 - I guess I'd better cast on!
