’m knitting this for a shop sample. The yarn is a sample provided to me by my rep to play with before I get my shipment. I’ve used the lace alpaca before in solid, and loved it. I knit the swallowtail shawl for my mom-in-law with it. love!

the shoalwater shawl is satisfying to knit and i’m using the addi lace needles, which at first i thought were a total gimmick but now i’m in LOVE with them. holy cow is it easier to do lace with these. yay!
