Lace

Gentlemen, I am taking a 2-day lace class (this Saturday and next) in Berkeley at the Lacis Museum. We will be knitting a mini-shetland shawl and it is suggested we bring a smooth yarn of either fingering or lace weight. For fingering weight they suggest needle size 3-6, for lace weight they suggest needle size 3-6. Can anyone make a suggestion (based on experience) about which I should choose-and the appropriate needle? While you're at it - wool? silk? alpaca? etc...

Thanks!

Need First Project Suggestion

Hi, Gentlemen. I just finished a beginning knitting class (3-2 hour classes). Now, I get to do my first project. The teacher suggested that we not start with a scarf or at least if we do then do a scarf from a pattern. I would appreciate any suggestions!
